The forward roll landing also kept the parachutist from carrying much equipment on his body ... Because of the rather athletic forward landing roll necessitated by their parachute harness, the German paratrooper could carry little more than a pistol and some grenades on his person.

CONT

L'entraînement parachutiste se poursuivait parallèlement : outre la séance quotidienne de pliage des parachutes, il y avait ce que nous appelions «la roulette» et qui consistait à descendre, accrochés à une poulie, le long d'un filin tendu obliquement du sommet d'un arbre, où l'on grimpait par une échelle, jusqu'au sol; au coup de sifflet, il fallait lâcher la poulie et se laisser tomber en pleine vitesse pour atterrir en roulé-boulé, avant, arrière ou latéral.
