6 Kumaon Polo Shirt
The 6 Kumaon shirt revisits an epic moment in our collective history when a gallant unit was all that stood between India and a tidal wave of hostility. This was the Battle of Walong, November 1962. Under-equipped and overwhelmed, the soldiers of 6 Kumaon fought like lions for their young nation – and left us a legacy of valour that we will never forget.
This design mixes traditional regimental iconography with new elements drawn from the history of 6 Kumaon. The Russell’s Lion insignia and the 'Jangi Sixth' nickname has been reframed within a red diamond inspired by their distinctive cap badge. The 1962 shoulder flash marks the time and place of the battle, and the arrow (a commonly used element in formation signs) is a nod to high altitude warfare and the Regiment's Himalayan roots.
Apart from its commemorative value, 100% of the profit from every shirt sold will go to the 6 Kumaon Battalion Welfare Fund that supports families of unit members that died in service.
