The Historical Diving Society is gearing up for its annual splash in at Stoney Cove.

The HDS is a group of enthusiasts with a love of copper helmet diving and other early forms of underwater exploration.

They are also dedicated to preserving diving history – even if it means keeping the practice alive.

On Saturday, June 11th the HDS will get together at the National Diving Centre at Stoney Cove, Leicestershire.

Also with them will be lead boots, a copper helmet, hoses and a hand pump for the surface-supplied air.

If you fancy seeing how it used to be done back when men were men, pop along to the HDS Working Equipment Rally on June 11th.
