We consider the connection problem for the sine-Gordon PIII equation (Equation Presented) which is the most commonly studied case among all general third Painlevé transcendents. The connection formulas are derived by the method of "uniform asymptotics" proposed by Bassom, Clarkson, Law and McLeod (Arch. Rat. Mech. Anal., 1998).
