Newsletter – Louis Smit Normandy Parachute Jump

Posted on

Injured Parachute Regiment Veteran, Louis Smit, will be completing a static line parachute jump over Normandy on the 6 June from a WW2 Dakota to commemorate the Normandy Landings during the Second World War. This is a world first for an amputee.

Louis was injured and medically discharged in 2013 following a Taliban attack whilst on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan which resulted in him losing his right leg below the knee.

Louis is raising money for Support Our Paras and says “Support Our Paras have supported me through some tough times during and post injury from adaptations for driving my car to educational courses so I could retrain as an electrician to enable me to gain meaningful employment. Your donations will go a long way in support of injured Paras”.
