T Shirt - 'Australia Full', Men's, White, circa 2009 Reg. No: HT 23121
- Small white men's t shirt with an outline map of Australia with the word "Full!" in the centre. This t-shirt was sold by the Politically Inc(correct) T-Shirts shop online. This shop is based in the United States of America and has a page exclusively dedicated to 'Australian merchandise' - all of which is related to Australian nationalism.

The image on the t-shirt was used during the Cronulla riots in December 2005 and on Australia Day celebrations and disturbances, including that on Manly beach on 26 January 2009. The image is an echo of the iconography of the former 'White Australia' policy.
