Vimy Ridge Beige Short Sleeve T-Shirt
Regular price $22.00
This Gildan® 2,000 Classic fit, 100% preshrunk, Ultra beige Cotton T-shirt, represents the Uniforms worn by the Canadian Troops throughout the battles of The Great War. From Verdun to Ypres, The Battle of the Somme and Beaumont Hamel to Passchendaele, right up to the Armistice on November 11th, which became Remembrance Day. This is why we were a Poppy and on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we stop for 2 minutes of silence, to remember those who fought for Canada. It was during the Battle of Ypres that Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (who was a Major at the time) wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields”.
