Last British Troops Leave Palestine Haifa, Israel, (/P)-—The last British troops left the soil of troubled Palestine Wednesday, thus ending 1 years of British military occupation of the Holy Land. In strict military order, the few remaining soldiers withdrew behind barbed wire barricades to troop ships and landing craft. British planes from an aircraft carrier task force buzzed overhead. Lt. Gen. Gordon H. A. MacMillan, Britain's last military commander in Palestine, was the last British soldier to leave Palestine, in the evacuation which began on May 15. He stepped aboard the ship s boat at 1:41 p. m., local time, just a few moments after the Union Jack was pulled down from the harbor office. Col. Joseph Hoffman of Baltimore, Md., headed the group of United Nations truce observers who will supervise the big port during the U. N. truce period. File on Ships Trim guardsmen and green bereted marine commandos filed quietly aboard the ships. Jewish police took over the guard posts as the marines retired. "It's a great day for us—one we've looked forward to for a long ime," said Capt. Sucher Spiegel, vho served in the British army's ewish brigade during World war I and now is chief of Haifa port >olice. The evacuation illustrated the enseness of Jewish-British rela- ions in recent years. Although no lostility was shown by the Jews this final day, the British staged a strict military withdrawal. As one group left its gun post it was covered by another. Delay Celebration Haifa's Jews delayed celebrating the event until late this afternoon when the new flag of Israel will be run up over the port city. Most of the marines.were plainly happy at leaving. When one column marched past a silent Jewish policeman, a marine grinned and shouted "you'll be sorry.' Aside from the traditional salute to the Union Jack, there was no British ceremony. MacMillan told newsmen "I am most sad indeed." Among those present to bid him farewell were United States consul Aubrey Lippincott and Vice Consul Randolph Roberts. A honey for saving money! Want a "date" that'll save you money?
