Source: SBS

Anzac Day is on 25.4.2021. What is the Jewish connection to Gallipoli? One of the heroes of the Anzac troops was John Henry Patterson, a highly decorated British soldier who trained Jewish soldiers for the Zion Mule Corps for Gallipoli, Jews that the Turks expelled out of Palestine. This became the first Jewish army in 2000 years. Our guest is the Melbourne eye surgeon, Dr Henry Lew OAM who was intrigued why John Henry Patterson was actively written out of history. After an extensive research he had written a book, “Patterson of Israel” Dr Henry Lew had in fact discovered that Patterson, a high-ranking British officer, has been actively been sidelined. Dr Lew found that in fact, Patterson was a great friend of Israel and the Zionism and was a great friend of both Vladimir Jabotinsky and Chaim Weizmann.
