Eric Smith's exploits were current topics when I did my conversion course. He was being looked after by one of the best WinchOps I ever worked with - Jack Canham. Taking care of the cable and 'pattering' to hold position, under those conditions, was quite something! Jack was tragically killed while serving in Borneo -fondly remembered. The photo below was in happier times.
