Palestine/Israel: Hapoel sports association maritime 'section' member's pin, circa. 1940's-50's; size: 24mm; weight 1.95g. The sea-branch of Hapoel was founded from fishermen, on the Yarkon river north of Tel Aviv by the Haganah militia in 1925; originally called the "HaYarkon Youth" it was renamed the "sea section of Hapoel" (the sea company of Hapoel Tel Aviv) in 1927, and up into the 1950's it functioned in a semi-military fashion, employed both in the transfer of [illegal] Jewish immigrants to Palestine as well as in defence matters. In 1959 the force became a competitive sports branch of Hapoel and is known today as the "Hapoel Tel Aviv Sea Club". Estimated date of the pin is based on font style and emblem design.
