Bob,the Russians duplicated all captured photos and film for an post war archive.Some were marked and some are not.Over the past few years they have gotten a bad reputation because the unscrupulous dealer have sold them to folks as original German photos.
I normally collect British and Commonwealth Service Book, but like to get some other examples occasionally - US, Red Army, Soldbuch, Wehrpass etc I saw this a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be an interesting addition and something a little different, but as someone with no knowledge of Hebrew (and various translate apps aren't helping) and very limited knowledge of the IDF at the moment its just a nice looking item - can anyone help with picking out the bones of this gents service? the seller pointed out some entries that seem to tie in with service during the Sinai War, 6 Day War & Yom Kippur War - although he wasn't able to tell me anything about his unit or whether his involvement was at/near the front or somewhere less glamourous
