Friday 11th November, 2016 will mark 98 years since World War One came to an end. You can show your respects once again this year with our British Army Rugby Union ‘Remembrance’ shirts, each with their own individual design and the ever significant poppy appearing. This year is the 6th year that Samurai Sportswear and the British Army Rugby Union have teamed up together & there are currently 6 Remembrance Day replica shirts available.
Each of the ‘Remembrance’ replica rugby shirts feature 360° sublimated designs and are designed in-house by our specialist graphics & creative team at Samurai Sportswear, working closely with the British Army Rugby Union on selecting unique and bespoke designs. A ‘Remembrance Poppy’ is added to every shirt inspired by the “In Flanders Fields” poem written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. Every shirt also reads an individual message at the back of the shirt, marking reference to those soldiers who sadly lost their lives through conflict.
Our ‘Remembrance’ range retail from £39.99, with the latest ‘Battle of the Somme’ shirts available at £60.00, marking the 100th anniversary of one of the world’s worst battles ever, where 19,000 British service personnel lost their lives in the first 24 hours.
Our Remembrance rugby shirts are available in sizes: XS – 3XL and are manufactured using our exclusive PerformeX™ fabric system, which allows for optimum comfort with moisture management ensuring the wearer stays cooler for longer.
Here at the #SamuraiFamily we’re very much looking forward to seeing the British Army Rugby Union kick-off their 2017 season in January. Trials for the 1st XV are due to be held on 21-22 November, 2016 and they will participate in 8 fixtures, including some key match-ups against Pro 12 side Ospreys as well as Royal Air Force and Royal Navy towards the end of their 2017 campaign.
