A YOUNG soldier tested his trampoline skills during the annual Oxfordshire Show on May 10, 1967.

Thousands attended the yearly extravaganza which featured animal shows and military displays.

Pictured is 10-year-old Colin Clarke from Cowley enjoying the activities at the Thame showground.

The 1967 extravaganza featured a new 55-foot sling from a tower operated by the parachute regiment of the military.

About 20 participants tested the apparatus before parachuting towards the crowds.

There was also numerous displays from primary school children from across Oxfordshire who took part in folk dancing and singing.
