Description

IDF fuel company of the Supply Corps Yom Kippur War appreciation uniface tallion, circa. 1974; weight: 21.05g; size: 36mm. Obverse depicts 3 emblems: on left is the old emblem of the Supply Corps ("Kheyl Haspaka"), on right is a stylized emblem of the 595th Supply Battalion's initials with legend "Yom Kippur War 8.10.73 Golan Heights, Sinai", and in between a fuel pipe device with the name "Fuel Company"; at base the word "In Recognition".

The Supply Corps was called so until 1975 when it was renamed the Maintenance Corps ("Kheyl Takhzuka") and finally the Logistics Corps; during the Yom Kippur War units of the Supply Corps were dispersed among the combat forces and also requisitioned civilian vehicles to transport men and material. One of the IDF's weaknesses in the War was its logistical framework, and thereafter it was completely reorganized.
