The new Magpul Dispatch Riders T-Shirt is now shipping to authorized retailers worldwide.
The iconic graphic featured on the “Dispatch Tee” comes from the WW2 era when electronic communication was unsecure and at times unreliable, using “dispatch riders” was the most effective way to deliver orders, reports and maps between units. These brave riders faced machine gun fire, artillery attacks and hazardous trail conditions, in some cases deep behind enemy lines. An example of what it might have been like is featured in this excerpt from “Adventures of a Dispatch Rider” By British Army Capt. W.H.L. Watson.
“Then came two and a half miles of winding country lanes. They were covered with grease. Every corner was blind. A particularly sharp turn to the right and the dispatch rider rode a couple of hundred yards in front of a battery in action that the Germans were trying to find. A “hairpin” corner round a house followed. This he would take with remarkable skill and alacrity, because at this corner he was always sniped. Into the final straight the dispatch rider rode for all he was worth. It was un-pleasant to find new shell-holes just off the road each time you passed, or, as you came into the straight, to hear the shriek of shrapnel between you and the farm.”
