Tools of the Frogmen

Two Frogmen, dressed for cold-water service, display their equipment for the Admiral before putting on a demonstration. Note the exhaust tabs on their chests and the tightness of the suits, which shows that the air has been pressed from the suits for a better fit and less buoyancy under water. On the deck before them are piled plastic, shaped charges of explosives fitted with waterproof fuses. These may be attached to obstructions and fired by electrical contact, or used above water and exploded with the standard fuse. The reel at the left contains hundreds of feet of detonating wire for such use. Both men wear the inevitable sheath knives for any and all emergencies, and the glass eyemask.
