Also there is a page detailing the training grounds at Largo House, known as 'Monkey Grove':
And - perhaps most exciting of all - the precise location of the jumping tower using for parachute jump training, at Lundin Tower has been identified!
Although the jumping tower has been written about on this blog some time ago (click here), it was not known to me that evidence of its position still existed. The location was found by the author of the 'Swooping Eagle' website with the help of a painting done by renowned war artist Edward Bawden, who had spent time with the Brigade in 1943. Bawden was an established commercial illustrator and designer in England when he became one of the first Official War Artists to be appointed in 1939, at the age of 36, He spent almost the entire war abroad but in 1943 had a spell on home soil, primarily at Largo and Colchester. His illustration of the jumping tower is shown below (source: 'Edward Bawden: War Artist' edited by Ruari McLean, in association with the Imperial War Museum (1989)).
