Diver, by Tony Groom

Tony Groom

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 pressure chamber, commuting to work in the freezing black depths of the North Sea through a hole in the floor of a diving bell.
