Don’t lecture me on where and when we did the drop Rapace! at 15:00hrs the green light went on and I was going out the door! What the rest of the regiment was doing is irrelevant! Any other fecking questions? Maybe you want to see a photo of the mutilated body of my mate Cpl Arnold! Or check the number of the front release clasp of the T10 parachute which I still have! Just to make sure I was there! Any other critique!?Correct, pictures taken by an Ancien of 4e Cie. The training on the T10 chutes was done all at once, and at that time, the decision to delay the drop of 4e Cie hadn't yet been taken, so the picture was taken before the drop, not when the first wave had already hit the ground.
Drop Zone A is where the first wave was dropped on May 19 (1re, 2e and 3e Cies). Drop zone B is where the second wave (4e Cie, Recce platoon, and 81 mm mortars) was dropped on May 20.
