The Book

£14.99 per copy

Tales of derring-do aside, ‘Check for Leaks’ is a personal reflection, as accurate as memory allows, of the JIM ADS trials (and tribulations!) during the 1970’s and ’80s. Some of the stories are suprising, some amusing and some very strange indeed. I do hope you enjoy it.

Although numbers are now limited, you can still purchase a first edition of the book from The Historical Diving Society’s website and have it signed on request. If there are any technical issues associated with placing your order you can always let me know via the form on this website’s Contact Page.
