Given the previous 3 photos were taken at Hamsey Green, Warlingham on 29/30 April 1933, it is highly likely this shot was taken at Hamsey Green as well. It's either Ivor D Price (parachutist) (killed in May 1935) or H Ward (parachutist) part of Sir Alan Cobham's National Aviation Day Display team. It looks like Ivor - a very brave man - and if you want to see him jump go to this link on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivM3I5FVyoQ It's a film from the Air Display at Sussex Farm, West Clandon to the east of Guilford, and you can see him get airborne on the port wing and he streams his chute before letting go. I don't think he was paid enough money.
