Fuselage markings Dambusters Raid Lancaster 1943 / Sleeveprint : Fighting Fascism 1943-2013
It was in 1943 on land, sea and air that the tide turned against Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. Our Dambusters raid T-shirt marks the 70th anniversary of this heroic raid on 17 May. The ingenious Barnes Wallis designed 'bouncing bomb' was delivered by the RAF's 617 Squadron to burst dams and flood the Ruhr Valley, the industrial heartland of Hitler's war machine. The AJ-N markings are from the third aircraft to deliver the bomb, piloted by Australian Les Knight whose crew dropped their bomb with pinpoint accuracy and finally the dam was bust. From this point on no part of the Nazi war machine would be safe.
Unisex sizes small (36 inch chest/90cms), medium, (40 inch/100cms), large (44inch/110cms), XL (48 inch/120cms) and XXL (52 inch/130cms). Available as listed in the drop-down menu below.
1943 was a year of victories against fascism, a cause we celebrate for then, now and for ever.
