Summary

"Poor eating, but tragically a great trophy. This was in the days of home-made helmets, lead belts and spear guns, prior to wet suits and air tanks. Thick woollen sweaters just as useful underwater, trapping body heat. Full (home-made) helmets replaced goggles when it was discovered that the majority of body heat was lost via the head." -- Description supplied by photographer.
