WWII British Desert Shorts

No. 5386




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

North Africa, 1942.

Churchill faces a second vote of no confidence.

Enter the Desert Fox.

Enter the Desert Rat.

Battles in El Alamein and Alam el Halfa follow.

It’s debatable whether these battles turned the tide of the war. What is not debatable is how badly the British needed the victory. Through brute force, and the RAF, they got it.

Monty (the rat) bested Rommel (the fox).

You’ve seen photographs of brave men charging through the dust, huddled up against Valentines and A22s. Some met the business end of the bonesaw and spandau joe. Others lived to hear Britain’s victory bells.

WWII British Desert Shorts (No. 5386). If you have our Gurkhas you’ll love these too. The front patch pocket is so peculiarly placed you know its purpose was practical. 100% cotton twill.
