Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women

From their website: "With over 120,000 Jews having served in the British Armed Forces during the World Wars, AJEX JMA is here to ensure that their immense contribution is never forgotten. Our aims are simple: to continue Remembrance of the Jewish contribution to the military; to combat antisemitism through education; and to provide welfare for Jewish veterans and their families. We also work closely with the Armed Forces Jewish Community which represents the interests of those currently serving."

The organisation was first called the Jewish Ex-servicemen’s Legion but changed its name in 1936. The Jewish Military Association seems (2022) to be an alternative name for this organisation.
