“Some never got the recognition they deserved at all so to wear the shirt with my head held high would simply be an awesome thing to do in the memory of all those in that war”. 

GET TO KNOW DARYL 

I am 57 years old retired due to a back injury. I keep busy doing what I can when I can. I help just about anyone that needs a hand as I believe in Karma. I have held many positions in my day I’m a qualified spray painter, bush mechanic, gardener, just to name a couple.  

I love to travel and to see and experience new places, people, all cultures, food, any new experiences I can have I try to take in. I would, however, love to see more of this great country of ours as it is simply an amazing place to call home. 

We are so unique and so lucky in many ways and I want to absorb this country’s soul before others take it away as we are slowly losing some of it now which is so sad. Our culture and our one of a kind flora and fauna are all disappearing and its a travesty. 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN USING DEFENCE SPORTING APPAREL? 

I really only found DSA a few short weeks ago, I never knew it existed till then but I am so glad I found it or it found me— see Karma.

WHY DID YOU START USING DEFENCE SPORTING APPAREL?

I started to use DSA as it is a wonderful product of high-quality materials and workmanship has gone into your product. The price is great for such a top-quality product and such a great thing as quality is so hard to find these days. 

No, I am not being paid to say these things it is just my belief. I am more than happy to give praise when I can.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM COUNTRY TO VISIT?

Africa as I would love to see all the animals in their natural habitat before they too are all gone or poached it would be such an inspiring place to visit just once in a lifetime.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DEFENCE SPORTING APPAREL PRODUCT? 

My favourite— that is extremely hard to have just one but I think it will be when I get it will be the Vietnam War shirt as they had it hard when they returned home and that wasn’t fair they were only doing what they had to and were told. Some never got the recognition they deserved at all so to wear the shirt with my head held high would simply be an awesome thing to do in the memory of all those in that war.

WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION WHEN YOU USED DEFENCE SPORTING APPAREL FOR THE FIRST TIME?

I was amazed at how well it fitted the quality of it the colours I felt excited at owning a piece of history really. 

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE MOTTO?

Sadly my motto is Trust No One, Assume Nothing, Question Everything. 

WHAT HAS DEFENCE SPORTING APPAREL DONE TO YOU PERSONALLY? 

DSA has given me more insight into what these men and women went thru in war yes its only a shirt and images on the material but what a powerful images they are and now every time I put on my shirt I pause and remember each one and thank them for what they gave and sacrificed for us all to be here today happy and free.

 

We’d love to know what you think about Daryl's story

  • I have already bought 2 of your shirts & I am waiting for my 3rd shirt. They are the most comfortable to wear, easy to wash & no ironing, they are also great to wear. I am sorry it has taken this long for me to find your shirts, I will be a life long customer.

  • Daryl’s story was great to read and I just love what the DSA Apparel means to him, as I think it hits home with all of us. We owe so much to our War Heroes who should never be forgotten.

  • I found Daryl’s story to be very interesting & very honest, especially the way he describes the D S A products. I totally agree with him about the quality of the shirts. So thank you Daryl.
