Historical Diving in France. ‘Babteme Pieds-Lourds’ in Issambres, France February 2021

Many thanks for Hard Hat Diver Jacques Abdoun from France for sharing some photo’s of his ‘Équipe’. Jaques and his ‘Équipe’ dive 2 helmets here: a 1917 Nippon Sensui helmet and a specially ordered TF 12 helmet from China which was given a top light. Usually Jacques uses compressed air supplied by a Dräger ‘D6000 Taucherautomat’, here he uses a Dräger Labor 2 and a US Navy style air valve.
