Private Jack White, born in 1896, answered the call of duty during World War I. His heroic actions earned him the Victoria Cross, where he selflessly rescued an officer, comrades, and equipment amidst heavy gunfire, ingeniously employing a copper telephone line.

Drawing inspiration from Private White’s courage and the contemporary clothing line, the specially commissioned Bentayga Azure incorporates intricate copper accents throughout the interior, including seat piping, embroidery, and bespoke features, symbolizing the copper telephone line’s valor.

Furthermore, the interior features meticulously crafted sewing lines reminiscent of military-inspired apparel, exuding style and functionality. Bespoke embroidery, including the Victoria Cross emblem adorning the headrests and Private White V.C. lettering, adds a distinctive touch to the cabin. The rear loose cushions are upholstered in a Lancashire-woven cashmere cloth, exclusively commissioned to honor Jack White’s regimental heritage.

The dashboard boasts organ stops finished in anodized copper, with the passenger fascia adorned with a silhouette of ‘Cottenham House,’ the historical headquarters of Private White V.C. In a subtle nod to the brand’s legacy, bespoke treadplates and an embroidered bulldog motif, the company’s unofficial mascot, grace the door pockets.

The exterior exudes sophistication, finished in Dark Sapphire with a contemporary Blackline Specification and rear privacy glass. The 22-inch bright machined wheels provide a striking contrast, serving as a canvas for the Private White V.C. bespoke badging and subtle copper accents.

As a crowning touch to this bespoke collaboration, the fortunate owner of this limited edition Bentayga will receive a curated collection of tailored clothing from Private White V.C., elevating the ownership experience to unprecedented heights.

Private Jack White V.C.

Jacob Weiss, later known as Jack White, was born in Leeds on December 23, 1896. Upon the outbreak of World War I, he enlisted in the 6th (Service) Battalion King’s Own and served valiantly in the Middle East, including campaigns in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia (Iraq). His unparalleled bravery during the attempted crossing of the Dialah River, where he saved countless lives under intense enemy fire, earned him the Victoria Cross.

“No. 18105 Pte. Jack White, R. Lanc. R.

For his extraordinary courage and resourcefulness.

During an attempt to cross a river, this signaler witnessed the two pontoons ahead of him come under heavy machine-gun fire, resulting in dire consequences. With every man on his pontoon, either dead or wounded, Pte. White, unable to control the pontoon, promptly tethered a telephone wire to it, leaped into the water, and towed it to safety, thereby rescuing an officer’s life and salvaging the rifles and equipment of his fallen comrades.”

Following his military service, Jack White began a career as a pattern cutter in a local raincoat factory. His meteoric rise culminated in factory ownership in 1937, less than two decades later.

In 1916, Private White V.C. supplied cotton gabardine trench coats to the Allied Forces. In the 1940s, the Ministry of Defense commissioned the company to provide waterproof parkas to the RAF. Over a century later, Private White V.C., based in Manchester, continues its legacy of crafting high-quality, stylish garments using the finest materials and craftsmanship.

In 2020, amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, Private White V.C. stepped up to produce medical-grade gowns and surgical masks, supporting the Department of Health & Social Care in combating the crisis.

Nestled along the banks of the River Irwell, the Private White V.C. factory thrives, propelled by the dedication and determination of its diverse workforce. With over a hundred individuals from thirteen different nationalities, the factory is committed to excellence, crafting premium garments sourced from the finest regional fabrics and materials.
