Various members of the Civil Defence services make up a large part of the congregation at this service at the Great Synagogue. They are wearing steel helmets, indicating that they are ARP (Air Raid Precautions) wardens and from stretcher parties, with their prayer shawls. This photograph was taken during a service which remembered the life of Myer Cash, a member of the Synagogue Board of Managment, who was killed in an air raid.
