For those who love History, here’s the story:
Its late May 1940, the British forces sent to defend France from the Germans are in disarray and have been pushed to the edge of the beaches in Northern France where their fate awaits. Their salvation is an armada of small boats from England sent to rescue the 300,000 troops trapped with their backs to the sea. Their true salvation lies in the skies above with the Royal Air Force fighters covering the evacuation and protecting against German air attacks. The British flyers were outnumbered but heroic while wearing their modified hooded sheepskin flight jackets, which protected them when they were shot down in the English Channel sitting on their small rubber rafts awaiting rescue.
Cockpit USA’s Dunkirk jacket is a tribute to this heroic moment in history. The Dunkirk RAF Hooded Jacket is proudly made in the USA with nostalgia and practicality in mind.
Please note: Sheepskin varies from production to production but you’ll always receive the same craftsmanship and warmth from Cockpit USA.
