Has the money been raised for the monument?

It would seem not.  A 2018 update noted that of the £100,000 required ........... "I have raised £10,000 with a further promise of £5,000 and have abandoned the statue scheme."

The writer of the Wiki article has referenced a book, but not apparently read it carefully enough. The Jewish battalions of the Royal Fusiliers served in the Palestine campaign (not Mespot)

A portrait, but one that you may have seen before; it appears in Nudes Gibbering: Isaac Rosenberg Entrenched by Ortwin de Graef
