Sleeveprint: Fighting for Freedom in South-East Asia 1940-45
In September 1940 Imperial Japan invaded French Indochina and the South-East Asia campaign of World War Two commenced, ending on VJ Day 15 August 1945. Battles raged across Hong Kong and mainland China, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaya and Burma on the border with India.
Our design features the Indian Air Force roundel as used by allied aircraft between 1943-45 during the South-East Asia campaign. The traditional RAF red, white and blue roundel was amended because the red circle made allied planes virtually indistinguishable from Japanese aircraft. The Indian Air Force helped block Imperial Japan's advances in Burma and Northern Thailand, Indian pilots and aircrew also served with distinction in Europe while on secondment to the RAF.
Unisex sizes small (36inch chest/90cms), medium (40 inch/100cms, large (44 inch/110cms), XL (48inch/120cms) and XXL (52inch/1230cms). Available as listed below.
