Dressed to Descend

Wearing a new type of wide-vision oxygen mask to be supplied by air from above, the UDT man makes ready to descend into the water below for salvage operations or survey. Note the safety rope around his waist and the lead weights attached to the belt to aid him in reaching the depth required for his explorations. In some salvage operations, a complete motion-picture record is kept of all activities for future reference and training instruction, hence the motion-picture camera just behind the man adjusting his mask. The long knitted suit protects him from coral and underwater hazards below.
