I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

There's no dignity in diving. Especially as you get older.

Things were hard after the War. We couldn't afford to eat too much. Obesity was rare! We were well-off but look so poor! Here;'s a picture of my missus in her wetsuit. I'm not complaining!

It was a training dive with a new company. First dive without a camera in forever! Sadly, I don't really even want to dive if I don't have a camera in my hands...... Lucky Ryan was there for this wicked shot!

Helpful info thanks

I am starting to think that brits might be into crossdressing, hence the need to specify where they are in the pictures :island: ;) :D
