Dear Editor,

I thought that you might be interested in hearing about my 50-year-old Guyana Independence shirt (made by Windsor Shirt Factory), which is still in excellent condition.

20160530Independence shirt20160530Independence shirt backI first wore it 50 years ago when Guyana became independent on May 26, 1966.

I was a 20-year-old man and was there at the National Park (the Queen Elizabeth Park). I was happy to wear it again for our 50th flag-raising ceremony on Wednesday-Thursday. The attached pictures (with front and back views of the shirt) were taken at my office on Wednesday, May 25, a few hours before going to D’Urban Park for the flag-raising ceremony.

Yours faithfully,

Rev Joseph O E Johnson
