Inspired by the haversacks of Canadian First World War soldiers, the Vimy Shoulder Bag is a rugged, all-purpose satchel that’s light enough to travel anywhere. Perfect for carrying battlefield maps plus your wallet, keys and phone. 100% cotton twill with adjustable padded shoulder strap.
The four vertical bands on the front of the Vimy Shoulder Bag represent the four Canadian divisions which fought together for the first time on April 9, 1917 at the Battle of Vimy Ridge. The red represents the First Division, the dark blue the Second Division, the grey-blue the Third Division, and the green the Fourth Division. The order of the ribbon’s (left to right) colours reflects the positioning of the Canadian Divisions facing the German defences on the day of the battle.
