Description

1973 Yom Kippur War era 'best regards' telephone call to family - here sponsored by the Southern Regional Command (i.e. the Egyptian front in Sinai) & the Education Corps: the form is imprinted with instructions for a switchboard "On Your Way Back - Please Call and Express in My Name a Live 'Best Regards' Greeting to the Following Person" - the soldier has asked for a relative (mother?) in JERUSALEM to be called and presumably informed by the service that her relative is alive and well. Here requested on 10 Oct 1973, the 5th day of the War which caught the country by surprise. The illustrated form depicts a hand stretching out from a phone handset bearing the acronym "Dash" for 'Drishat Shalom' (eg. 'hello greetings' / 'best regards').
