This week we hear from former Palestine policeman during the 1940s British mandate, Bill Smith. He was in a Palestinian police headquarters when it was attacked by Jewish terrorists the Irgun one morning. Bill explains how the British mandate was set up in 1920 after the 1919 Versailles treaty, the British formally receiving approval for the mandate on 1922 from the League of Nations. Bill went from the merchant navy to become a British policeman in Palestine which was under attack from Jewish terrorists. He then joined the army and fought in Korea before spending a much more pleasant time in Hong Kong.
