WWI Judaic militaria hat badge of 1st Judean Battalion

Lot 80572
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').
