With Halloween arriving tonight, the UK Garrison Imperial Scottish Squad spent some time at the Glasgow Science Centre Halloween Weekend.
Thankfully we had enough troops to keep the pesky Rebels at bay over the weekend but they were equally responsible for smiles, selfies and many high-fives. It was great seeing so many people dressed up for this annual event. Thank you to The Rebel Legion UK for helping us support a worthy charity event. Looking forward to next year.
We would like to welcome Lynwen Brennan (rightmost in photo) as an Honorary Member, inducted by TD-3681 on behalf of the Imperial Welsh Squad of The UK Garrison.
Lynwen is currently the General Manager and Executive Vice-President of Lucasfilm, and oversees all businesses, including Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, and Skywalker Sound.
We would be honored if you would join us in welcoming Lynwen to the 501st!
Today the Imperial Scottish Squad said goodbye to our friend and fellow member of the legion Simon Brown, who sadly passed away on the 23rd October.
Simon was a member of the Rebel Legion who brought a lot smiles on faces with his Admiral Akbar, X-wing, and Boba Fett costumes. A Rebel at heart but a true Star Wars fan.
We’ve known Simon for a number of years along with his partner Shona. We shared plenty of good memories and we know he will be looking upon us when we’re attending events across Scotland.
We must not forget why we do this, family and friendship are the core values of our organisations.
We will miss you Simon. You are now one with the Force.
Members of the Imperial Welsh Squad made a trip to the Royal Glamorgan Hospital on Thursday to spread a little Christmas cheer.
Thanks to the staff and patients for letting us visit the Paediatrics ward.
