This WWII WASP T shirt is a reproduction of an original WWII PT shirt from our collection. This WWII Air Transport Command PT Shirt has 5th Ferrying Group Air Transport Command Love Field Texas on the front with the Air Transport Command Insignia in the center.
The first WASP pilots, originally known as the WAFS, served with the Air Transport Command in a number of the Ferrying Groups. The 5th Ferrying Group was formed at Love Field in Dallas Texas. Florene Miller commanded the WAFS in the 5th Ferrying Group, which included Helen Richards, Dorothy Scott, Betsy Ferguson and Helen Love. They ferried PT-17’s, AT-6’s and twin-engine Cessna AT-17’s. Later they were merged with the WASP program.
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 WASP 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.
Just like the original t-shirts, this reproduction is 100% cotton with a period correct narrow 5/8″ neck, shorter sleeves and a slim/snug fit.
