Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, together with Dee Why RSL, have today launched a special commemorative ANZAC Day jersey featuring an image of a Lone Soldier paying respect at Dee Why Beach.
The image of the lone soldier featured on the front and back of the jersey was captured at the Dee Why Beach Anzac Day Dawn Service.
The jersey will be worn by the Sea Eagles in their ANZAC Day clash against Wests Tigers at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday, April 25.
The new Dee Why RSL logo features on the main front of the jersey with Sea Eagles Major Partner URM moving to the lower back of the jersey for this ANZAC Day game, providing the opportunity for Dee Why RSL on the main front.
A proud Corporate Partner of the Sea Eagles, Dee Why RSL’s annual ANZAC Day service attracts more than 12,000 Northern Beaches locals.
The photo was taken just as the sun rose over Dee Why Beach and those in attendance who were paying respects experienced the sky turning from black to a spectacular mix of red, orange, yellow and purple, which is featured on both sides of the jersey.
A single poppy appears on the front of the jersey along with poppies forming a band around each sleeve.
The meaning of the poppy was first captured by a poem ‘In Flanders Fields,’ which was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. This poem is recited at the Dee Why RSL Dawn Service each year.
The jersey is now available for purchase at our online shop.
