A comfortable organic cotton AWMM illustrated Spitfire t-shirt in red, navy or black (size 10 only).
The Spitfire was the favourite fighter aircraft of the British fighter pilots along with many New Zealanders who piloted Spitfires during the war.
The Auckland Museum Collection Spitfire is a rare late example and was never flown in combat but was presented to the people of New Zealand by a grateful Britain.
Built in late 1945, this Spitfire Mark XVI was not commissioned until 1951, when it saw service with the RAF until 1956. In 1956 New Zealander Sir Keith Park, commander of No 11 Fighter Group (which defended London and the south of England during the Battle of Britain), arranged for it to be given to Auckland War Memorial Museum to remember the important part it had played in the war.
