A number of the members of this unit eventually formed the basis for the Hagganah, the predecessor of the IDF.   The late Israeli defense minister Moshe Dyan was part of the Jewish Brigade when looking through a pair of binoculars, it was struck by a bullet, costing him an eye, resulting in his wearing of the trademark eye patch.

Never could understand the business with shorts and knee socks worn by British forces (and African professional hunters) in the tropics.  When I was about five or six, I was roller skating and fell down, skinning both knees quite painfully.  To this day, I do NOT wear shorts, no matter how hot it is! :rolleyes:
