I was talking about 3/10.........in general. Although, I did check out the "sit upons" to see if my diaper changing days would assist in making an identification!:D

I'd like to share this one, 1989 in Bad Tölz, Flint Kaserne, between the Tennis courts and the teamhouse. I was interpreting for the team when they went into the field with a German outfit.

L to R:

me, a German captain, Bill McNeill (Opns Sgt., deceased) and Ken B. (still AD).

They were conducting "Avalanche Training". Not sure if this was the portion in Keystone or on Pikes Peak. The more contrast the better, considering the type of training involved and the extreme risks involved in the area they were working.

"Fast-roping is a technique for descending down a thick rope. It is useful for deploying troops from a helicopter in places where the helicopter itself is unable or unwilling to touch down. First developed by the British, its first combat use was during the Falklands War. " Wikipedia.

This is not true. We got tired of trying to rappel out the back of the 21st SOS HH-53s supporting JCRC in '73-'74 and using the jungle penetrator which was way too slow for putting a team on the ground when the a/c couldn't land. Climbing large ropes during PT gave us the idea that we could use a large rope like a fireman's pole to get down quicker and safer. A couple of guys procured a piece of rope from a tug down at the port in Samaesan and it was secured to the jungle penetrator mount out the starboard door of the HH-53. I did my first fastrope at NKP from an HH-53 in the spring of '74--and there certainly weren't any Brits around the area. It was one of those ideas that often happened in SF which nobody claimed any credit for but took on a life of its own once started.
