Stormtrooper in the Napoleonic Wars

At a recent reenactment of the Battle of Hastings (1066), people dressed in military uniforms worn throughout English history, including the Roman, Norman, Georgian and Galactic Imperial periods. In The Independent, Felicity Morse describes the appearance of a stormtrooper:

The appearance of the stormtrooper clashed somewhat with the historical characters, making it appear like some kind of time-travellers reunion.

However one online commenter said it was important not to criticise the stormtrooper, posting

"He is just networking looking for a job. Ever since the destruction of the Death Star and the collapse off the Empire there aren't many employment opportunities for stormtroopers.

"Especially with the discrimination and residual angst towards those that fought on the losing side of the rebellion. Please don't perpetuate the unjust treatment of these people that are just trying to fit in and become a productive member of society"
