Description

Etzioni Brigade "Defender of Jerusalem" variant badge, circa. 1948; weight: 3.4g. A solid-back badge with safety-pin reverse (typical of Israeli badges of that time).

Though not documented in standard militaria literature, this appears to be a version of the "Magen Yerushalyim" badge (see item 0132028) issued to members of the 6th Etzioni Brigade, which served in the Jerusalem area during the War of Independence: the brigade's emblem is the crenelated battlements of the wall of Jerusalem with a shield and the sword emblem of the Hagana superimposed on it (but without the word "Jerusalem" below the sword, as on the Defender of Jerusalem badge).
