The British Legion was founded in 1921 and granted its Royal Charter in 1971 as part of the celebration of its 50th anniversary. At the bottom left corner of the front of each shirt in this range is a drawing of the "dog tags" issued in the 1st World War. Their use will be limited to this range of shirts. In their day they were made of compressed asbestos dyed red and green and secured with butchers twine. There are five designs. The others within this series are Lord Kitchener, Let Us Sleep Now, Big Poppy, and War Time Pidgeons.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
