Now that is one expert diver.

My dad hooked up with those guys in Normandy in 44 and said they were good soldiers. If you new him that was supreme praise indeed.

He might be from the hundred-and-worst, but that was a Ft. Bragg landing, feet, knees, face.

Thanks for the birds eye view.

I was always taught that a forward PLF used 3 successive points of contact- toes, knees, teeth.

That would be a precision forward landing. Let us not forget the rear PLF, feet, a$$, head.
