Israeli army (IDF) khaki battle-dress shirt, 1950: a rarely seen version of the Israel Defense Forces work/battle dress uniform shirt (probably domestically made - see item 0010209), with angular-cut front pockets, and butternut colored American styled plastic buttons (6 down the front). The inside is stamped in two places along the bottom shirt-tail with the Hebrew letter "Tzadi" (for the first letter of the word "Tzava", or "army") and two numbers ("2878" - perhaps a source code, and "40" - perhaps a size); another label bears the Hebrew word "Tzava" (Army) in Hebrew, with the date underneath "1/50" (January, 1950), the size (41) and a place for the supplier (which is left blank). A tab at the collar which may have revealed the manufacturer is now mostly missing. Except for the lowest front button which is missing and a age stain to a portion of the front of the shirt, the uniform is in superb physical condition.
