But look at those "Resistance" insignia ... don't they remind you of certain collar patches?

I once read somewhere, that director George Lucas found his idea for the "Stormtroopers" in old documentaries about marching german units.
The parading LSSAH in their black uniforms was supposedly an inspiration for the "Stormtroopers" in Star Wars...?
I am by no means a Star Wars fan, but I also remember that the LSSAH marching in goose step were also called "Asphaltsoldaten" (asphalt soldiers) in Germany at that time.
Presumably, however, at that time only behind a hand held up, for this designation one would have wandered at that time behind lattice, or into a KL, very surely...
Am I totally wrong ?
