Abstract

The article below, dealing with the role of the South African Artillery in the capture of Nebi Samwll (8 km northwest of Jerusalem) during World War 2, is but a short extract from a much more comprehensive work on the SA artillery that is being undertaken by the Military Information Bureau, Pretoria. One of the burning questions that still remains unanswered is: what happened to the historic canon, on which the Key of Jerusalem was engraved, that played such a vital part in this particular campaign? If anyone should have information on the whereabouts of these canon, he is requested to contact the Military Information Bureau at Private Bag X 289, Pretoria 0001 (telephone no 28-1731 X 554), as soon as possible.
