Thank you for the understanding. Of the brigade tag has the two-pointed edges on the upper side.
It is from the early days of the Independence War of 1948. Depicting the illustration of the Carmel Mountain, the sea coast and the city of Haifa where the brigade was located. This insignia tag was used from 1948 and throughout the very early 1950's until the insignia was replaced by a new badge that did not have the shield-like two-pointed edges on the upper side. These tags were sewn onto the left shoulder of an army winter coat.
It is made from green cloth which is printed with the colored insignia of the Brigade. The brigade was formed on February 22, 1948 during the 1948 Israeli Independence War, when the Levanoni Brigade in the Galilee split into the 1st Golani Brigade and the 2nd Carmeli Brigade. In its early days the brigade gained control over three battalions - 21st, 22nd and 23rd, later during the war, the 24th battalion was established. It has since participated in all of Israel's major wars and nearly all major operations, including the Sinai War, Six-Day War, War of Attrition, Yom Kippur War, Operation Litani, the first and second wars in Lebanon, and various operations during the Palestinian intifadas. Measures 6.5 cm wide on the upper side and 7 cm tall.
This obsolete tag is very rare today so do not let this item slip through your fingers. In fair used condition showing age wear and sawing marks along the rim. These blemishes are to be expected in a vintage used army tag which is about 70+ years old - but nothing that detracts from its importance.A "must have" for your vintage Jewish-Israeli military collection! I don't consider myself an expert on all my findings, but I do try my best to describe them the best I can. I will be happy to send any additional photo's.
And is willing to cover the higher costs, I will be happy to accommodate. Higher levels of compensation are included only in the. Sometimes postal service is getting slower especially at weekends and holiday. Occasionally there may be delays because of extra security checks at the post office. I have earned my high feedback record by being honest, fair and by describing items for sale as accurately as possible.
