The 501st Legion's United Kingdom Garrison deployed to Elstree Studios in Borehamwood today in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm, and to raise money for the FIRST worldwide charity.

The Garrison paraded through the Elstree streets and entered the studios with flags flying, assembling at “The George Lucas Stage” (Stage 1 was renamed the George Lucas Stage in 1999 in George’s honour, and saw many reels of filming of Star Wars).
