Its #maythe4th , and we would like to take this opportunity to go back in time and introduce you to 3 gentlemen who back in 1977/8 help to start the Star Wars revolution.

We have not one but two exclusive interviews with Honorary 501st legion members, First an interview with the original TK421 (why are you not at your post??) Stephen Bayley the only stormtrooper to actually be 'named' in StarWars a New Hope,

and then a joint zoom interview with Alan Austen & John Mogridge, the two Stormtroopers who 'helped' Han Solo(Harrison Ford), enter the carbonite freezing chamber in The Empire Strikes Back.

Alan & John Interview

All have now been inducted into the 501st as honorary members, and we welcome you troopers!!!

Many thanks to members of the UK Garrison, 501st legion and especially Rob Mason TK-10962 for arranging the presentation and interviews

The UK Garrison is proud to support the following charities.
