WWII Patrol Squadron T Shirt is a reproduction of an original WWII PT shirt from a photograph.
Originally designated VD-5, this photographic recon unit flew reconnaissance over the Japanese islands of Chichijima and Iwo Jima between 1944-1945 before going on to complete a 35 mission survey of Kodiak, Alaska.
During WWII, athletic style tshirts were available for purchase at the PX and were commonly used in training and athletic situations. PT shirts with a variety of different unit logos are well documented in many WWII photographs.
This replica WWII Patrol Squadron t-shirt is screened by hand and variation in colors naturally occur. Our WWII Reproduction PT shirts have a spec tag screened inside the neck.
