Allow us to welcome Alan Austen to the 50st Legion Hall of fame with an Honorary 501st Legion Membership.

Alan will probably be best remembered as a Stormtrooper in The Empire Strikes Back, identified from the carbon freezer chamber scene , where Alan and another Stormtrooper, place 'Han Solo' (Harrison Ford) into the freezing chamber for the infamous bounty hunter to take with him.

Alan , we are grateful for all that you have done for the Star Wars Universe, we are proud to welcome you into our 501st Legion family.

Many thanks to UKG member Rob Mason TK-10962 for arranging the presentation.

TK-10962 of The UK Garrison was proud to induct the OG, the original stormtrooper TK 421 himself, Mr. Stephen Bayley as an Honorary 501st Legion member!
Stephen played a stormtrooper known as TK-421 in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. He also, in some shots of Darth Vader piloting his TIE Advanced, filled in for David Prowse as Vader's gloved hands.

Stephen, we are grateful for all that you have done for the Star Wars Universe, we are proud to welcome you into our 501st Legion family, and most of all, we thank you for staying at your post!

We would like to welcome three more very brave and worthy young lads who have received Honorary Stormtrooper status with the UKG.

On Saturday 2nd April 2022, the UKG attended the 5th annual Hollywood Glitter Ball in Hull where funds were being raised for two causes.

The first cause was for 8-year-old Alex and 12-year-old Joel Wilkinson who so sadly both have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for which there is no cure and who need equipment to assist them.

The second cause was Duchenne UK, a charity funding research into the condition.

Also in attendance was the organiser's son, Ashley Wegg (14), a massive Star Wars fan who also suffers from DMD which currently has an average life expectancy of just 27 years.

Thank you for your service troopers!

This week is World Autism Acceptance Week and today is World Autism Awareness Day 2022, and the UK Garrison would like to take a moment for us all to contemplate both people with and also families living with Autism.

There are roughly 100,000 children in the UK on the autistic spectrum, and each child is different from the next child. Children with autism might find it tricky to feel part of everyday life, and this is where the UK Garrison play an exceptional part in their lives.

Not only have we helped raised money for Autistic Charities, but we have made children Honorary Stormtroopers of the Garrison, and have recorded Video Messages for children where we couldn’t meet in person.

The UK Garrison supports World Autism Awareness.
