Fall for the Fallen in aid of BLESMA veterans' charity

Friday, 05 December 2014

Take the plunge

Two London masons have taken part in the charity skydive Fall for the Fallen in aid of Blesma, the limbless veterans charity. Robert Rusz and Blieu Earp from United Engineers Lodge, No. 3862, carried out a 13,500ft tandem jump to raise money for injured service personnel.

The event saw one jump for every soldier killed while on operations in Afghanistan and took place at Netheravon Airfield, near Salisbury in Wiltshire, where the Army Parachute Association carries out skydives. Blesma is the national charity for all limbless service men and women, their widows and dependants. It was formed in the years following World War I and became a national charity in 1932.
