the scrapbook of diving history

September 22, 23 and 24, 2023 the Barcelona Underwater Camera Museum organized the 4th 'Vintage Underwater Camera Meeting’ in Lloret de Mar, Spain. Both Thomas en Batiste from France and myself were present there with a Dutch Army 'Pontonniers' Siebe Gorman Diving Equipment. Juan ‘Snorkel’ Torras from Llafranc brought a 3 bolt Russian equipment and a Miller Dunn Divinhood Style 3. On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September it was be possible to take photo's of the helmet divers under water. The divers of duty were Antonio of the Spanish Armada (Navy), Thomas and Batiste from France, the Miller Dunn set of Juan was used by a number of SCUBA divers who simply swam under the helmet once it was in the water to take it for a walk. The album below shows our own surface photographs (taken by my wife Hanna en myself). Many thanks to the Police and Guardia Civil Divers Units of Lloret de Mar for their assistance. And many thanks of course to Andrés Claros and his friends of the Barcelona Underwater Camera Museum for organizing this event, thanks to the Dolphins Diving Center in Lloret de Mar for the air they provided. We hope to be back next year! ...
