About the design

The Lest We Forget polo commemorates the Australian and New Zealand men who fought in the first World War. Overlooking a vivid orange sunset, a soldier is seen standing on a ledge, playing the Last Post on his bugle.

The Last Post signifies the end of a day's work, and in the background of the image a line of soldiers can be seen standing listening to the song with their rifles resting against them, pointing to the sky.

On the front pocket as well as on the left sleeve the 3rd pattern Rising Sun Badge can be seen. We are proud to have an official endorsement from the Australian Army that allows us to display the 3rd Pattern Rising Sun Badge on this polo.

This special insignia was worn by all soldiers of the 1st and 2nd Australian Imperial Force in both WW1 and WW2. This version of the rising sun badges incorporated a scroll which had the words “Australian Commonwealth Military Forces” inscribed.

HISTORY

The Light Horse Brigade

The back of the polo highlights the Australian Light Horse; which were mounted by soldiers, known as Light Horsemen. During the Gallipoli Campaign, the Australian Imperial Force consisted of an infantry division and a light horse brigade - where the brigade was predominately used in a defensive role. The soldier atop the Light Horse is holding a flag post which carries both the Australian and New Zealand flags.

Beyond the soldier and Light Horse, a trail of soldiers can be seen marching in the distance.

On both the front and back of the polo, birds are seen flying in the sky. Birds taking flight represents freedom and peace, for the end of the war. Also in the sky, the renowned slogan, “Lest We Forget”, is written underneath a large, red poppy in full bloom.

Lest We Forget is a commonly used phrase, often used in war remembrance ceremonies and occasions. However, the term originated from a Christian poem written in 1897 called, “Recessional”.

An excerpt is as follows:

God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine -
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!'
