    1945-2005 Celebrating the defeat of fascism
     
    Possibly my only general election campaign t-shirt plug. Philosophy Football have done it again. With this 1945 D-Day design. Now I don't usually go for military wear but I was born on D-Day anniversary 1962. But more especially, this is a good reminder both of the limits of pacifism, and more positively of the sixtieth anniversary of the defeat of fascism.

    One of a set of four commemorative shirts to pay tribute to the extraordinary heroism of ordinary people in all four theatres of the war. The roundel on this shirt is from the Normandy landings and features the colours and markings of a RAF Hawker Typhoon 1B, JR371, TP.R of 198 Squadron, Falaise Gap, Normandy June 1944. With sleeveprint '1945-2005 Celebrating the Defeat of Fascism'

    A timely reminder of why good, honest, ordinary people fought that war; and of the struggles which their descendents need to inherit to ensure their hard-won victory remains intact.

    Philosophy Football also do a Never Forget / Never Again shirt to help fund local Searchlight campaigns against the BNP.
