Description

The Flying Prince T-Shirt in navy. Inspired by the legend of Alexander Obolensky, “The Flying Prince”.

Prince A. S. Obolensky was a Rurikid prince whose family fled Russia after the Russian Revolution of 1917, settling in London.

Known as “The Flying Prince” he excelled in rugby, gaining two rugby blues representing Oxford University. In 1936 he scored 2 tries on his England debut in a 13-0 victory over the NZ. Obolenskys debut game was the first time that England defeated New Zealand in a rugby match.  England would then be unable to defeat New Zealand again until 1973. During 1936 The Flying Prince would gain 3 more caps playing for England. On the outbreak of war, Obolensky joined the RAF. Tragically, on 29 March 1940, a day after being recalled to the England squad he was killed during training when his Plane overshot the runway on Martlesham Heath, Suffolk. He was only 24 years old.

Featured on The Flying Prince T-Shirt design is the English Rose in the form of a smart appliqué as well as the vintage Oxford crown on the front of the chest. The arm also features Ellis Rugby branding. This T-Shirt is manufactured from Satin touch 100% Cotton. Herringbone detail features on the side vents in addition to velvet tape on the neck opening.

Available in sizes S to 4XL.
