Trevor Sharpe doing the 'Straddle.'  Note the absence of any 'soft landing' aids (other than sand).  The buildings at the back were part of the USAAF hospital (Nurses' accommodation) and the land on which they stand reverted back to Thompson's Farm ownership after the War.

Adrian 'Twinks' Smith completing what looks like a 'Western Roll' followed by a broken wrist!
