Underwater Project

This unusual underwater photo shows the UDT men unlashing a rubber raft from the deck of a submarine floating about eighty feet below the surface. These men have tanks of compressed air upon their backs for breathing, and wear the face masks for clear vision. As the water is warm, they do not wear the full-length rubber suits required for colder waters. Once the rubber raft is free of the lashings, they will swim with it to the surface and inflate it for the trip into shallower waters where they must perform their mission.
