Thanks buddy. Much appreciated. :-)


Finally got my induction on Sunday ... it’s been a long time coming .... but it’s worth the wait

We built our armour at the same time mate, got EIB and Centurion at the same time.... you have done shed loads of troops.... me.... diddly squat.... lol

Seriously Dan... you are an inspiration, reading your log reinforced what I’ve missed.

I think I’ll be spotting it will be nice to put a face to a name that’s encouraged me to get this far

Thank you, Stephen. I hope that Sunday goes well for you. I’m sure you’ll have a great day and I look forward to hearing about it soon. :-)

Troop #13

 

Christmas Fayre - Fordingbridge

 

December 8th 2018

 

This was my final troop of 2018. I have family that live in Fordingbridge, a little town/village just outside of the New Forest, so it was lovely to give back to the community.

 

The troop was actually a Rebel Legion UK troop with an invite for the UKG. As you’ll see, I was the only Imperial, but did have a Mando to help me keep an eye on those pesky rebels!!

That’s all for this year. Thanks to anyone that’s read my troop log throughout the year. See you all in 2019.

 

Best wishes

 

Dan :-)

Haha- funny seeing you beside the old Kenner TK. Would you approve that TK for basic? Haha.

Haha!! Yes - perhaps we need an armour maker to recreate this full size, then add it to the CRL. :-)

Troop #14

Hi all,

It’s been a while since my last troop. The arrival of a new baby moved my time to other areas but I couldn’t miss this troop.

MCM Comic Con - London Excel - May 25th 2019

Troop #15

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children - September 21st 2019

Possibly the most rewarding troop I’ve attended. A small group of us were in attendance to bring smiles at their annual party for past patients. We were well received by the children with nearly all of them having a photo and meet and greet with us.

After the event we were led back through the hospital to our changing area and met some lovely families along the way.

So proud to have attended a troop at GOSH and looking forward to visiting them again soon.

Troop #17

 

December 18th 2019

 

The European Premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - London’s Leicester Square

 

I am incredibly grateful to have been selected to represent the UK Garrison at this event. I was one of 16 TKs, 8 TDs, 4 TIs and a whole host of other characters. We were also privileged to watch the media screening the day before.

 

We were in constant contact with Disney and were asked by them to parade the Blue Carpet ahead of the celebrities’ arrivals.

 

 

Credit on each photo, where applicable. :-)

Troop #18

 

“Coffee with a Character”

 

During these tough times for charities, (with many fundraising events cancelled due to Covid), it was great to see this event pop up. In usual times, Macmillan Cancer Support run a yearly Coffee Morning. This is where people have a bake sale of similar, at home or at their workplace, to raise money for cancer support.

 

Obviously, this year is very different, so, they offered the chance for people to host a socially distanced or virtual coffee morning.

 

As I have an okay-sized driveway, we went with the socially distanced option.

 

We hosted the event on Saturday 26th September and offered cakes, cookies, teas and coffees for an optional donation.

 

Thankfully, the social distancing was easy to maintain. Between 9:30 and 12noon we raised a wonderful total of £340 for Macmillan. :-)

 

Here are a few pictures from the event.
