Deep Diving and Under-water Rescue
Sir Robert H. Davis: Published 1934? by The Royal Society of Arts
The Royal Society of Arts (John Street, Adelphi, London, W.C. 2) has issued in this pamphlet the four Thomas Gray lectures delivered in February 1934 by Sir Robert Davis, Governing Director of Messrs Siebe, German and Co., Ltd. The lecturer outlined the whole story of divers and diving from sub-aquatic insects provided with natural air-pipes as diving-bells, through the naked human divers, the earlier diving appliances and dresses, to the flexible and armoured deep-water diving dresses of to-day. He touched upon diving-bells; submarine observation chambers; the problem of "decompression"; and described a few of the more notable operations in deep water for the recovery of treasure or ships. In his last lecture Sir Robert Davis dealt with his own invention, the well-known submarine escape apparatus which is now part of the standard equipment of H.M. Submarines, and has already saved valuable lives. Everyone interested will welcome this useful pamphlet of 62 pages and 40 illustrations by one of the most prominent figures in the salvage world. - T. D.
