Francis Lane, who works on Barrow Island, designed the pieces because he believes West Australians do not do enough for defence personnel and their families.

‘We should be doing a lot more to look after those who serve or who have served and their families,’ Mr Lane said.

He has already sold 250 shirts to Barrow Island colleagues at $135 for the polo shirt and $145 for the rugby jumper.

‘It takes 2.5 hours to complete the embroidery on each shirt, he said.

‘And they take 650m of metallic thread.’
