Unlike other signs in the same series, this sign is not shaped like the silhouette of the old building of the Herzliya Gymnasium (there is probably another sign with the same text in the usual way).
The building next to it is where the sign was taken that day by the same photographer Click for a larger image Translation of the text on the sign

In early 1948, transportation routes and power lines served as weak points in the struggle between the Jewish community and Arab gangs. The network workers of the IEC were called to go to work in difficult conditions and in a fit of rage.
On the morning of March 18, 1948, Yeshayahu Halevitz, Avraham Steinpers, Yehoshua Bornstein and Kalman Geller set out on their way to Acre to repair a severed high-voltage power line. British armor accompanied the group. Arriving in Acre, British workers and escorts were attacked from the ambush. Four members of the group and five British soldiers were killed.
Four IEC employees were laid to rest in a mass grave in Ramat Yohanan. The street where they fell in Acre was named "Derech HaArba" after them.
