This Umbro shirt is the red away version
of the lightweight v-necked home white shirt that made its debut in the
1954-55 season. We believe that the numbers on the back of the shirt were blue
for the first game and orange for the second.
The shorts were white and the socks were red, with white tops.
It was worn on only two occasions, both of which were 3-1 victories against
the World Champions, West Germany. At Wembley in 1954, a scroll with the
opponents' name (GERMANY) and the year were displayed underneath the emblem,
whilst in Berlin, eighteen months later, they were excluded, as illustrated on
the shirt worn by Jeff Hall above.
