The discussion of British military service reminds me that my grandfather,
Jacob Rappaport of Brooklyn, NY (underage at the time), served with the
British army during WW1, with what I vaguely recall might have been called
the Jewish Brigade. I have found his return transport, as well as that of
his older brother William (orig. Velvel) on the Ellis Island site. Out of
curiosity, does anyone know whether there are online records of British
military service >from that time?
