Cpl Arnhem reports again …
I was so excited, this week I have been invited to perform a tandem jump with my heroes, the Red Devils!!
I had been given three dates that the team were going to be in my location and I was to be available to jump. My bearer had very kindly offered to drive me to the airfield and had also assisted me in raising sponsorship for my jump.
- Day 1 – cancelled due to the weather
- Day 2 – cancelled due to the weather
- Day 3 – cancelled due to the weather
What was a bear to do? – needless to say I was gutted. But some of the guys very kindly invited me to join them for a couple of photos, I did try and persuade them to take on another member of the team – but they told me a 13th member would be unlucky (in reality I think they were worried that my rugged charms would be too much competition
Having wished the team luck with their display next week in Normandy, I came away with the promise of a rescheduled jump next month, I’m so excited and wait with crossed paws for better weather and the phone to ring
Of course I will let you know how it all goes, and send photos to prove I did it ……… Cpl Arnhem.
