Haganah Officer, 1948

A Haganah officer demonstrates how to fire a STEN gun. Some women in the Haganah served in combat positions, but many more were relegated to "behind the scenes" work of the paramilitary organization, work that was considered more traditionally feminine and appropriate for women.
