Swordfish - Sweat Shirt
Swordfish - Sweat Shirt £40.00
Fairey Swordfish 825 Naval Air Squadron took delivery of the Swordfish in 1936, replacing the Fairey Seal and Blackburn Baffin. At the start of the Second World War the FAA had 13 squadrons operating the Swordfish. Despite its age the Swordfish was an outstanding combat aircraft serving in the Norwegian campaign, in the Mediterranean and famously took part in the sinking of the Bismarck whilst operating from HMS Victorious in the Atlantic. The Swordfish remained in service until 1946, but one remains flight worthy with the Royal Navy Historic Flight. Sweat Shirts are made from 80% ringspun cotton and 20% polyester. Comfortable to wear at 280gsm with ribbed collar, cuffs and hem. Check the sizing page as this item can be slightly different than other brands.
