British WWI 2x identity tags belonging to Palestinian-Jewish soldier, 1914-1918
9970465
Britain: WWI era set x2 identity tags belonging to Palestinian-Jewish soldier, circa. 1914-1918; weight: 1) 1.95g and 2) 1.65g. Tags bear virtually same information; issued to "Weinstein E | PAL10111 | JEW". The green tag was strung through 1 hole & hung around neck; through 2nd hole, shorter cord strung with red tag on it; red tag was retrieved by cutting its string, leaving green tag on body: if body found only with green tag, was understood that soldier's death already reported. Dated to WW1 but ID begins with "PAL" ('Palestine') as in WW2, and not "RF" ('Royal Fusiliers') as the Palestinian units in WWI were known: soldier may have been a Palestinian resident or in Zion Mule Corps.

1918 WWI Jewish Battalions Eretz Israel Volunteers Medal by Boris Schatz Bezalel
11270466
Palestine: 1918 "Eretz Israel Volunteers Medal", by Boris Schatz (Bezalel); size: 2.45cm; weight: 6g. Obverse: antithetical design of Roman 'Judea Capta' coinage, here depicting "Bat Zion" freeing self from Roman captivity with Hebrew legend "Judea Freeing Herself" in exergue; medallist's name "B Sh Bezalel" at left. Reverse: Kabbalistic symbol with letters of "Shma Israel" and Hebrew legend "For the Volunteers of the Nation in Eretz Israel" & Hebrew date 1849 for "1918" (per dating method as of 70 AD, destruction of 2nd Temple). Issued on 4 July 1918 to local Jewish volunteers setting out to join the 40th Royal Fusiliers (one of the 3 Jewish battalions of the 'Jewish Legion'). This was the first modern military medal ever issued by Jews for Jews - and more so for service in the land of Israel.

Although seldomly encountered and not a standard catalogued item, there is a very precise account of its issue in Ever HaDeni's book "A Nation in its Wars" (publ. 1948; pg. 104): "In mid June-July [month of Tammuz, 1918] there was organized a large assembly at the ruins of the home of Rabbi Yehuda the Chasid in Jerusalem, with the participation of James Rothschild and his escort Lieutenant Lipsy. The son of the Baron [Rothschild] delivered a speech on the importance of the Hebrew [i.e Jewish] Battalion which would fight shoulder to shoulder with the British. After him, spoke Lipsy and the Rabbi Charlap, who said: 'Who is the G-d fearing and good hearted man who will go forth and return to his home.' The wise man Laniado gave support to his son the volunteer and at the same time people distributed fliers sponsored by the Battalion committee with the cry 'Long Live the Hebrew Battalion'. Students of the seminar answered the call and from sixty men, close to 40 enlisted as did 17 year-olds and teachers from the Boys' School. Fathers took with them their sons; mothers sent their children to enlist and brides sent their husbands. The Yemenite community sent upwards of 50 people (from Jerusalem); and volunteers from the religious Yeshivot also came. On 4 July 1918 in the morning, after the departure ceremony, the volunteers were issued a "Bezalel" made medal on which was stamped, 'Bat Zion Who Broke the Chains of Exile' - and depicting the Roman running away from her. At 12 o'clock the volunteers set out by train, accompanied by a crowd of 10,000 people."

WWI Judaic militaria hat badge of 1st Judean Battalion in Eretz Israel 1919-1920
10570467
Hat badge of the 1st Judean Battalion in brass, 1919-1920; not maker-marked; size: 3.6 x 5cm; weight: 9.2g. This is the design with the flat-sided base of the 'Menorah' (candelabra); and the upper half of it, with the branches, is also flat (normally this section is more curved) - as the weights and sizes of these badges vary, this may be a variation in the die used. Bears the Hebrew word "Kadima" ('forward') on the scroll at the base. Nice toned piece with light oxidation; some grains of dirt(?) in the incuse details on the reverse.

WWI Judaic militaria hat badge of 1st Judean Battalion in Eretz Israel, repaired
9970468
First Judean Battalion cap badge, 1919-20: bell-based Menorah (Candelabra) variant of the badge also seem with straight-lined base, repaired at center but broken in two; size: 34 x 46mm; weight: 8.85g. The emblem is that of the World War I era Jewish Legion (Jewish Battalions), but worn as an emblem by the post-war successor, the 1st Judean battalion, drawn from former Battalion members and serving guard duties in Palestine from 1919-1921, until it was disbanded. The uniqueness of this badge is its singular Jewish motif: the 7 branched Menorah (candelabra) and Hebrew text (below the base, which reads "Kadima" - 'Forward').

WWII Judaic militaria hat badge of 2nd Battalion Jewish Brigade Group c.1944-46
9370469
Jewish Brigade: medal hat badge of the 2nd Battalion, Jewish Brigade Group c.1944-46; not maker-marked; size: 35 x 39mm; weight: 10g. The design is based on the original worn by the Brigade's predecessor, the "Palestine Regiment" (1943; whose design caused a mutiny to erupt among its Jewish and specifically Zionist-Revisionist members), but the regiment's version was professionally manufactured by J. Gaunt of London. The present type, of crude "field" manufacture with thin bronze slider on reverse, is of a type photo-documented worn by the Brigade's 2nd battalion. It's unclear if the battalion was entirely composed of former Regiment members or worn only by former Regiment members within that battalion. In any case the emblem is not that of the Jewish Brigade as a whole.

WWII Judaic militaria original Zionist flag shoulder patch of Jewish Brigade
9170470
WWII era Jewish Brigade Zionist flag shoulder patch - original, 1944-1946; 5.3 x 5.2mm. Although the Brigade numbered some 5000 men from Palestine, most were not issued the Brigade's emblem of the Zionist (soon to be Israeli) flag and the "Jewish Brigade Group" shoulder flash patch. Photographs show soldiers wearing both sets of emblems on both of their sleeves, while others wore only one of the two patches on one of their sleeves. Rare to find an original piece, and frequently forged.

WWII Judaic militaria original photo of 1st battalion Jewish Brigade soldier 1945
10470471
Jewish Brigade: original photograph, dated 1945 (on back), of a soldier of the 1st battalion of the Jewish Brigade (far right), possibly with other Jewish/Palestinian soldiers - all in British Army battledress uniforms; size: 14 x 8.9cm. Of note: the Brigadesman wear drivers' goggles and his Brigade insignia is unique to the designs documented in sources like Alex Fridman and other photo-histories - his tag appears to be a single piece with printed blue-white-blue square flag with Star of David + battalion bar below, a style very similar to that of the IDF. Lacking further details about the time-period, this picture may have been taken in one of many locations - Italy, the Tarvisio border triangle with Yugoslavia and Austria, and from June 1945, in Belgium or Holland.

Eretz Israeli Judaic militaria WWI veterans organization pin with swords & 'Zion'
12670480
Eretz Israel/Yishuv undocumented military organization emblem pin, c. 1920s-30s; 2.45g, 3.2 x 1.5cm: Star of David w/"Zion" in Bezalel style writing surmounted on crossed swords - reminiscent of WWI German veterans' medals. Probably belongs to either the "Association of Jewish Officers in Eretz Israel" (אגודת הקצינים העבריים), founded in Tel Aviv in 1935, or "Union of Jewish Combatants" (התאחדות לוחמי החזית העברים בארץ–ישראל) whose emblems used a similar motif. Other possible organizations are "Association of Veterans of the Jewish Battalions in E.I." (איגוד החיילים המשוחררים מהגדודים העבריים בארץ–ישראל) and the "E.I. Association of Jewish War Particiants" (האיגוד הארץ–ישראלי של משתתפי המלחמה היהודים). For a similar pin without "Zion" in center & possibly related to Holocaust-era Jewish partisans or "nokmim", see Lot #a60569.

Jewish pilot/aircrew pin probably 1948 Israeli Independence War Machal volunteer
11370495
1947-1949 War of Independence era Jewish pilot's wings; not maker-marked; 37 x 9.5mm; 0.95g. The wings have the appearance of a private manufacture: an etched design on a thin die-cut piece of metal depicting a six-pointed Star of David between two pointed wings - reminscent of the United States Air Force pilot's wings. Although Jewish aviators volunteered in various conflicts/campaigns in the 20th Century, this pin was probably worn by a Jewish volunteer ("Machal" - Hebrew acronym for "Foreign Volunteer") - probably an American - in the nascent Israeli Air Force, and probably in the pre-State period as this is a non-official badge and the design focuses only on the Star of David and bears no reference to Israel or its military. The safety-pin reverse is consistent with the type used in this period in Palestine/Israel, and is soldiered to the back. The Israeli Airforce numbered 607 aircrew personnel in total, of whom 426 were foreign volunteers (92 non-Jewish); 182 were from the US. Rare and unique.
