    A good book

    Just finished 'Diver' by Tony Groom, its an excellent book.
    Groom was a RN Clearance Diver and is now a commercial sat diver. He describes life as a RN diver, his experience in the Falklands war and then goes on to talk about commercial work.

    there's some terrifying stuff about pulling unexploded bombs out of a ships magazine in the middle of an air raid, or getting bounced around the bottom in a bell at 120m when the support ships power fails.

    Sounds very interesting. Sadly, temporarily out of stock both on Amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

    Tony is the real deal, and I enjoyed a nice correspondance with him as he wrote the book. Good guy, and a good read.
