Stormtroopers were the assault/policing troops of the Galactic Empire. They wore white armour made from plastoid over a black body glove which, in addition to creating an imposing image, was outfitted with a wide array of survival equipment and temperature controls that allowed its wearer to survive in most environments, and were designed to disperse blaster bolt energy.
Holly Copse Molly Dancers
Molly Dancing originated in the English Midlands and East Anglia and is associated with Plough Monday (the first Monday after Twelfth Night).
Tradition has it that as a way of filling the gap between Christmas and the start of the Spring ploughing season, the ploughboys would tour around the village landowners, offering to dance for money. Those who refused would be penalised in various ways including having a furrow ploughed across the offender's lawn.
