    Westcoats

    Just to give you a preamble on the name this embroidery company was doing up limited editions of shirts for the memory of ANZAC. The shirts had the rising sun emblem (Obtained official approval to use it) and was to have been done for 4 years duration of the conflict each shirt has a different emblem on the back.
    I have all the shirts including the extra one the leaving of the first fleet from Albany each shirt comes with its COA and serial number.
    I contacted the company to see when the 2017 orders were being released and was informed by her husband that she passed away suddenly in July 2016 and the business had been closed.
    This is pretty sad as all the funds raised from the sale of the shirts went to the Legacy foundation for our troops.
    From a single run of a 1000 shirts in 2014 it morphed into 10,000 by 2015 so those that got the 2014 one it is a rare one.
    So if you are wondering why Westcoats have not released any orders this is the reason.
    (See pics of 2015 shirts after the ANZAC Day parade.)
