Maximum Impact Force Derived From Military Parachute Tests?

I've been trying to find the 1950's military parachute test on impact forces on the human body that led to the UIAA's "maximum impact force" guidelines. I've found a ton of resources that mention the test, but haven't found any that reference it. I think the test may be titled "WCLE-53-292".

Does anyone know where I can find the test, or even where I could start looking?

Thanks.

http://www.hse.gov.uk/...df/2003/hsl03-09.pdf

summarizes a lot of such testing, but doesn't seem to mention WCLE53-292 as searched
