The WWII Sub Base T shirt is a reproduction of an original WWII design. This US Navy USN PT shirt says Sub Base New London, Conn.
The USN New London Submarine Base is located on the east of the Thames River near Groton Conn. It was the first submarine base in the U. S. Navy and is also referred to as the “Home of the Submarine Force.” The base was largely expanded during WWII, where it grew from 112 acres to 497 acres.
During WWII, athleticstyle t shirts were available for purchase at the PX and were commonly used in training and athletic situations. PT shirts with a variety of different unit logos are well documented in many WWII photographs.
Just like the original t shirts, this reproduction is 100% cotton with a period correct narrow 5/8″ neck, shorter sleeves and a slim/snug fit. These WWII Reproductions are true to size. This WWII Sub Base t shirt comes in men’s sizes.
