הקרבות על אכסניית נוטרדם
עם צאת הצבא הבריטי מירושלים, ביום 14 במאי 1848, תפס כוח ערבי את אכסניית נוטרדם.
במסגרת "מבצע קלשון" הוחלט לכבוש את האכסניה. בליל 18 במאי 1848 כבשה את המבנה יחידה של "ההגנה" מגדוד "מוריה", שכללה תגבורת של לוחמי חי"ש (חיל שדה) מאזור תל אביב.
כעבור יומיים תקף כוח צבאי של הלגיון הירדני, שכלל שריון ורגלים, את הכוחות המחזיקים בנוטרדם במטרה לפרוע לעבר מרכז ירושלים היהודית. לוחמים מגדוד "מוריה" ומגדודי הנוער (גדנ"ע) הדפו את הכוח התוקף ומנעו את התקדמות הלגיון אל מרכז העיר.

Two days later, the Israell troops together with pre-military young soldiers repulsed an Arab Jordanian Legion renewed attempt to retake the hospice and advance into the Jewish city center.
