Diver

A Royal Navy and Commercial Diver's Journey Through Life, and Around the World

Book Description

Diver is an honest, moving and sometimes hilarious account of a hair-raisingly exciting career, both in the Royal Navy and in commercial deep-sea diving—training the most unlikely of raw recruits ... handling unexploded bombs while under air attack ... living for months in a pressurized bottle with a voice like Donald Duck ... commuting to work through a hole in the floor in the freezing, black depths of the North Sea.
