Sergeant Deane Smith jumps with the London 2012 Summer Olympics’ torch as Warrant Officer Spencer Hogg tracks away (Major Alastair Macartney is not in view). The three make up team Jump4Heroes, the Royal British Legion’s awareness-raising skydiving and BASE jumping team. The team had previously taken Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson, a double amputee injured in Afghanistan, on a tandem skydive. In return, he let the team jump with the same torch he carried during its 70-day relay from Athens to London.
