Editor's Notes



Realm & Empire is a curious and innovative clothing concept. The brands inspiration comes from it's unique partnership with the British Imperial War Museum, one of the foremost authorities on British war time history and leading custodian of WWII artefacts. The Churchill War Rooms is the foundation of this fab Retro Clothing collection with Sir Winston himself the chief protagonist.

Initially named the Local Defence Volunteers (LDV), the name was changed to Home Guard as a result of the slightly derogatory slang term of Look, Duck and Vanish, that became associated with the LDV.Operational between 1940 to 1944 the Home Guard was localised defence organisation with 1.5 million volunteers. Most of these were otherwise ineligible for military service due to age (a subject matter expertly tackled in iconic sit-com Dads Army). The Home Guard served as a secondary defence force around coastal areas, airfields, factories and explosive stores throughout Great Britain.
