    description: On Monday the 5th of December there will be a 100th anniversary Remembrance service commemorating the explosion that killed 35 women who were employed at Barnbow, Crossgates producing shells for the First World War. At the height of the war 16,000 were working there; 95% were women to enable more men to serve at the front. The service takes place at a Memorial in Manston Park, Crossgates at 1.30pm in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Leeds Councillor Gerry Harper, along with other Councillors and members of parliament. There will be several Standards; a Bugler to sound Reveille and Leeds Group Chairman of the Royal British Legion David Marshall will recite the Exhortation and Kohima Epitaph. This event is supported by Leeds A J E X and the Major Clive Behrens branch of the R B L with the presence of our members and Standards commanded by Alan Myerson, Chairman of the Major Clive Behrens branch of the Royal British Legion. As so many worked on producing munitions there, it seems likely to me that a few members of the Jewish Community will have been involved. I appeal to any relative to come forward.
