|Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free logo for Glider Pilot Regiment|
This is a logo for Glider Pilot Regiment.
The logo may be obtained from Glider Pilot Regiment.
The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.
The logo is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.
|Purpose of use||
The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing Glider Pilot Regiment, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.
Because it is a non-free logo, there is almost certainly no free representation. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.

On 31 January 1945 1st battalion landed at Haifa and underwent a period of refitting and training, a process that was still ongoing when the war in Europe concluded. Within Palestine the internal security situation began to deteriorate and the battalion became increasing involved in combating the insurgency campaign waged by several Zionist terrorist organisations. The battalion began patrolling the area around Tiberias to interrupt enemy movements and conducted operations to defend the rail network from sabotage at night. During November the battalion was transferred to the 6th Airborne Division and placed under the command of Lieutenant Colonel H.C.R. Hose DSO. The battalion continued to conduct internal security operations for much of 1946, and was involved in the rescue effort following the bombing of the King David Hotel. Shortly afterwards, the battalion was employed in Operation Shark, a large ‘cordon and search’ operation covering Tel Aviv, beginning on 30 September as a part of the 2nd Parachute Brigade Group. The entire population was screened and 787 persons detained for further questioning. Five arms dumps were discovered and 176 small-arms, 4 machine guns and 23 mortars were confiscated.
