realm & empire 'storm ridin' men's retro loopback jersey sweatshirt with vintage logo print. the intriguing scorpion print has a story that dates back to wwii and the mfv kufra. a hand made flag bearing the scorpion motif and with lrdg signature was flown on the kufra. an 80 ton schooner fishing vessel, mfv kufra was used as a mobile headquarters commanded by 2nd lieutenant dick croucher, an intelligence officer with the lrdg. the vessel was used by members of the long range desert group (lrdg) on raiding operations into yugoslavia from italy. the 'ridin the storm' tagline seems apt considering the flag was flown on a military commandeered ship that would have been perpetually subject to adverse conditions. the crews endeavors to keep the vessel from harm perfectly sum up up the sentiment of the tagline. the realm & empire 'storm ridin' men's retro sweatshirt fuses contemporary fashion style with a nostalgic and historical theme.
