1957 Israeli first day cover signed by Moshe Dayan in Hebrew. This first day cover was signed when Dayan was Israeli Chief of Staff.
First day cover signed "Moshe Dayan" in Hebrew. 5¼x3½. Israeli first day cover. Postmarked Rafiah, Israel, March 4, 1957. One purple-and-orange Israeli stamp affixed. FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. This first day cover was postmarked when Dayan was Israeli Chief of Staff. Dayan (1915-1981, born on Kibbutz Degania Alef, Palestine, now in Israel) joined the Haganah militia force and was imprisoned by the British for his involvement with them from 1939 to 1941. After serving in the British Army during World War II, he fought in Israel's first war after independence in 1948, losing his left eye. As Israeli Chief of Staff (1953-1958), Dayan is credited with the Israeli Army's success in Gaza and the Sinai in the 1956 Suez War. As Minister of Defense (1967-1974), he planned and commanded the Six-Day War (1967). Dayan's star waned somewhat in Israel after 1973's Yom Kippur War; he was blamed for Israel lack of preparedness in that war. He was Foreign Minister from 1977 to 1979. Lightly toned and creased. Signature touches stamp and postmarks. Light impressions on front and back. Paper loss on verso. Otherwise in fine condition.
