July 1940, Volunteers from Eretz Israel during a Break in their Sapper Training in Ranworth, Scotland

Jews from Eretz Israel (Mandatory Palestine), as citizens of the British Empire, enlisted in the British military after the outbreak of World War II. They were transferred to Britain and Scotland, where they underwent training. 2,500 Jewish soldiers were enlisted in the ground crews of the Royal Air Force (RAF) and in the Auxiliary Military Pioneer Corps. This photo depicts Jewish volunteers during their training in the Pioneer Corps in July 1940 in Ranworth, Scotland.
