Spanish Civil War British Battalion Banner

Banner of the British Battalion, The International Brigade, Spanish Civil War 1936-39 Spanish Civil War British Battalion Banner

70 years ago in 1937 the British Battalion of the International Brigade fought in its first battle at Jarama against Franco's fascists. This superb anniversary T-shirt is based on the Battalion's banner from the period which was carried to Brunete, Ebro and elsewhere. Volunteers from Britain totalled 2,300, of whom 525 died in Spain.

Buy it from Philosophy Football.

Mine's in the post.


  • Just looking at these yesterday,very smart, there's a nice Catalonian one, but unfortunately no sign of an Irish or Basque version.
