A Stormtrooper helmet from the first Star Wars film has sold for almost £200,000 by a relative of a British country squire.<br />
<br />
Captain Robert Hawkins and his wife Anne were gifted the iconic helmet for staging the Star Wars Cross Country Team Event at their English manor house in 1978.<br />
<br />
The bizarre equestrian event was attended by Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, Darth Vader actor David Prowse, Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca, and football pundit Jimmy Hill.
