very nice, i might print them outon photo papaer, make a little album. I saw a book of photos fomr the war of independence, was contemplaiting whether to but it at £25 but i just bought jeans for £50, spent £30 the other day on various stuff like cinema etc and gave £60 to a chairty in Israel that provides 'food boxes' for passover seders for poor families in Israel. Im a student so I cant afford to spend too much. Though basicaly, i just spent the money im saving by being back at home over the easter holidays.

Whats the original website?

It is going to be interesting to see some video about Yom Kipur War.

By the way, while looking for video about Yom Kipur war I found interesting video where Arabs celebrate their victory over Israel in 1973.

These pictures are from the site of the 14th brigade that fought in the Yom Kippur war on the Egyptian front and lost 303 men.
the pictures are from the album of the brigade commander Amnon Reshef.

At the first two days of the war, the only IDF forces that were facing the entire Egyptian armies were one reserve infantry brigade spread in company outposts across the canal, which were used as forward observers for artillery, and a number of armored brigades which were supposed to offer help to the outposts but were ill prepeared for the new Soviet Sagger ATGMs which the Egyptians then possesed.
the 14th brigade was one of those armored brigades along with a few units they picked up along the way and took under their command.
