The new national chairman of the Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women says its educational programme can shape its future.
Arnold Phelops, a former dental surgeon who served in the Royal Army Dental Corps in the 1950s, was elected at the Ajex AGM.
An Ajex member for 12 years, he has chaired its Hendon and Golders Green branch and leads its national education committee.
"We go out to various organisations and schools and they come to our museum and we tell them our stories and experiences," he said.
