The slogan was applied to mail carried by the emergency sea-route established while Nahariya was under siege, once a service fee of 20mil had been paid (for outgoing mail). The pre-applied frank (10m for letter rate) was then cancelled when the letter was deposited with the Mandate postal service in Haifa. This 2nd slogan design was in use for only 2 days (23-24 March); covers sent on the 23rd were cancelled in Haifa on the 26th. Certified by Aloni & Tsachor. Estimated value $5000++ (for double strike)
