Army Rugby Union Official 2018 Poppy Remembrance Shirt in partnership with Samurai Sportswear and the Royal British Legion to commemorate 100 years sine the end of World War 1.
Ladies semi fitted shirt produced by Samurai Sportswear using their exclusive wickable, breathable Performex 200g Ikoma fabric that has been engineered to meet specific needs of the modern day athlete and is equally suitable for leisure wear.
Fully sublimated design.
The original concept behind the new 2018 shirt the ‘Tommy Soldier’ was to display 100 poppies to acknowledge 100 years since the Armistice ceasefire of WW1 on 11th November 1918. The design has evolved to produce the outstanding end product that you can see to the left. The mosaic poppy pixels build an atmospheric background behind the lone Tommy Soldier, where visual textures from the original photograph have been captured to create a 3D depth within the design.
The photograph used within the design is of Ray Lonsdale’s Corten Steel statue and was taken by photographer Graham Dobson. The statue was originally a temporary art installation in County Durham, but through local funding it has now been made a permanent fixture.
