Assorted Equipment

Here, the two Frogmen shown on the opposite page (page 10) have been joined by five other members of the UDT unit, dressed for warm-water service. One of these, fourth from the left, is wearing a special type of underwater mask which combines breathing with vision protection in one unit. All wear the traditional knife, and the characteristic flippers on their feet. The third diver from the right carries a roll of fuse in his left hand, plus a small electrical detonator for exploding charges under water. This detonator delivers a hot electrical spark to the explosive to explode it from a distance, after the Frogmen have retired to a safe distance from the underwater shock waves from the blast.
