Spirit of Dunkirk at IWM

3546af18-4dc0-4ed5-ab7a-f25bcffa53a2

History buffs and film fanatics unite as the highly anticipated film, depicting the Second World War evacuation, is set to hit cinemas on 21 July.

With the anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuation underway, there are a number of commemorative products from the Imperial War Museums Shop that tell story of the Spitfire - the plane which flew overhead whilst the remarkable operation was underway in 1940.

There’s something for the kids with a Glow in the Dark T-Shirt (£12), a washbag (£35), tie with Spitfire motif (£28), a pair of Spirit of 1940 Spitfire cufflinks (£225), a Spitfire blue-print umbrella (£20) and a metal desktop Spitfire (£45). The cufflinks are crafted from the actual metal of the Supermarine Spitfire MK II P7350, the oldest flying Spitfire in the world. The P7350, which is today operated by the RAF’s Battle of Britain memorial Flight, was the 14th aircraft of nearly 12,000 built at Supermarine’s Bromwich factory, first flying in August 1940 during the Battle of Britain. The cufflinks are accompanied by a certificate of provenance and presentation box.

You can find them all at www.iwmshop.org.uk.
