    description: LUXURY COACH LEAVES SINAI SYNAGOGUE CAR PARK AT 8.30am. To ensure that this year we are able to take all who wish to come, please put your names down in advance to avoid being disappointed. There will be a remembrance ceremony at the A J E X National Jewish Military Service Memorial conducted by Rabbi Reuben Livingstone and Leeds AJEX Chaplain Rabbi Anthony Gilbert. A Military Band and the presence of Jewish Standard Bearers and Veterans from around the country wearing their medals will create a scene to be proud of. The Memorial is made of granite and in the shape of a large Mogan Dovid and is a visible reminder of the contribution of service to the crown by Jewish Men and Women who gave their lives for us. There are over 300 other forces memorials present in the idyllic parkland surroundings of the Arboretum and we will be able to visit the Armed Forces Memorial, a massive structure which has engraved on it the names of more than 16000 who died since 1945. There is a Basra Memorial wall complete with original bricks brought back from Iraq with 200 plaques. An RAF memorial and one dedicated to the Falklands campaign where 250 died. The atrocities of the Japanese campaign are exposed at the Far East Prisoner of War Exhibition building. Relatives of Veterans are entitled to be present wearing their medals, as are those who served in the Fire, Ambulance, Civil Defence, Merchant Navy or were Bevan Boys. The route of the Road Train that travels around the memorials has been extended and there is a continuous commentary. Many AJEX members go every year but if you have not been before, I believe you will go home thinking you have had a memorable experience. There is an AJEX marquee, picnic areas and a cafeteria.
