Palestine: "Northern Fence"/"Tegart's Wall" completion pin, 1938; not maker-marked size: 17.5x29mm; weight: 1.05g. The fence of barbed wire & reinforced positions was built to supress terror during the Arab Revolt, by order of Charles Tegart, security adviser to the Palestine Government, and contracted to the Jewish Solel Boneh Co. by Alec Kirkbride, district governor of the Galillee. The Jewish community saw in the undertaking a great moral, security and diplomatic achievement, and the wall existed until 1942-46 when dismantled. Pin dated 20 of Tammuz 5798 (19/07/1938) - probably celebrating completion of the Wall (formal ceremony was on 31/07). Very rare pin.
