Download PDF for this date

The British Hechalutz organization has opened a new 15 acre training farm at Bosham on the Sussex coast.

Most of the farmers are British veterans and the farm is named in honor of Major Shmaryahu Sagerman, a member of the Hechalutz who was killed at El Alamein. A 25 ton fishing vessel will shortly be added to the group’s equipment.
