Exclamation D-Day 75th Anniversary MLU polo shirt

Just like in 2014, James Gosling is going to have a new run of these MLU polo shirts made up. Of course with "D-Day 75th anniversary" embroidered on them plus the MLU logo and Canadian Broad Arrow Ownership & Acceptance Mark.

If you want to place an order, reply below with the number of shirts you require plus the size.

Do not hesitate for too long as James needs to put in the order somewhere next week. There'a already a dozen members in the UK who have placed an order, so it is sure a run of these will be made.

Not sure about pricing and postage, James will update us when he's back after the weekend.

Before I say "yes, please", is an estimate of shipping to Canada possible?

Default Postage

An approximate cost of postage for one polo will be £7.00 to Canada and £7.50 to Australia.
I hope that helps
James

Let me know if you need me to pay up front, or if exchange for Euro's at Longues meetup is OK.

Assuming the order for the shirts to be made is still on track for delivery in time for Normandy, is information about how/when payment is expected available?

Been there and back and no shirt in either my packed or carry on so looks like the postal option is the way forward to get a shirt.

I have tried to send James (Gosling) an email through MLU but have no reply so far.

I did request 4 shirts and if I made it through before order cutoff time would like to:
1) request a total cost including shipping to Canada,
2) pay James (paypal?) so he can ship me the shirts

I suspect James has been busy with planning and participating in Normandy and I don't want to harass him but I also don't want him to be out-of-pocket for shirts made on my behalf.

Does anyone have suggestions of a good way to reach James?

James P, it was good meeting you in person in Normandy!

I'll ask James Gosling to let you and Grant know about shipping etc. James told me he may do a second run, but I will let him confirm this here.

Edit: James just let me know he is in the middle of a house move, so let's cut him some slack and wait ;-)

HTH,
Hanno

Absolutely - as stated "I don't want to harass him but I also don't want him to be out-of-pocket for shirts made on my behalf" - whenever he's got time free will work.
Thank you for the update.

Hello Hanno, it was great meeting you also. No worries about the shirt as Mr. Gosling settles into a new house, nice shirts and still interested in one should another run be made up. I also think that as there are two folks in Ottawa wanting shirts that maybe they can be sent as one postage over, just a thought on this.

Should another run be considered, I would like to see them without the "70th Annversary of D-Day" text, and also available in XXXL (purely for Ganmain Tony's benefit of course! )

@James, there's an idea: having the next run made up without the D-Day anniversary text?

@Tony, take into account that the XXL size of the last run was at least one size larger than the XXL size of the previous run.

No thanks, I think this is going no where regarding getting one of those rather nice shirts. If there is another run, then I would be all in but I cannot see this happening at this point.

Default Polo Shirts

Apologies to everyone but the house move and loss of broadband etc has made the last few weeks chaotic, however I am back now and ready to send out the Polos. I am also doing an add on order for anyone who missed the first one.

So please if you have ordered already, would you please PM me your address so that I can get the items bagged up and get the postage figures. I can then let you know final amounts.

If you haven't yet ordered but would like to please PM me your order with your address to save time in the long run.

Thanks
James
