Hi Doug The helmet is called a Neff-Ducey. In 1965 my then tender and my self designed and built this helmet. My diving career was about to come to an end due to hand jetting ear infections. Joe Savoie had invented the first light weight diving helmet but at that time he had stopped building them. So Mike and I decided to build our own. Historical Diving Society has these and other diving helmets listed under modern diving. Thanks for asking.    Jerry

We practiced that in school so I was used to it. With the mixed-gas rig we had a small pulley to keep the hat off our shoulders while sitting standby.

Yes, it is...back in 1980 as a standby diver doing pier inspections in Diego Garcia!
