Planning the Project

Sometimes the UDT men are called in on salvage operations. In this case a crashed aircraft. The three men wear long suits of heavy underwear such as is usually worn under the rubber suits in really cold weather or cold water. Here, in the warmer water, they are worn as protection from jagged coral or sharp metal scraps beneath the surface. The man seated at the right, who wears the wrist compass, depth gauge, and watch, is the same man shown in the photo on page 9, when the Frogman equipment was described. All three wear the three-tank air supply on their backs for long stays under water.
