the scrapbook of diving history


Siebe, Gorman & Co Ltd.‘made in Myanmar’ (Burma)

A Japanese visitor of the website sent me these photographs of a very old and used looking helmet with a badge marked ‘Siebe Gorman’ on it. The look of it the helmet reminded me of helmets which I had seen in the mid 90’s when traveling through Myanmar (Burma) When I told this to the man from Japan he replied:

Hello David

Thank you for your information.

And Oh my god!!

I bought this diving helmet in Myanmar on Sep last year…..

But I greatly appreciate you.

Because I really thought this diving helmet vintage siebe.

I’m so sad but I’m lucky because it’s before sell someone.

Best regards.
