The Tony and Yvonne Pardoe collection is well known to collectors and historic diving societies around the world since the publication of their two volume book Diving Helmets and Equipment Through the Ages in 2012.

Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are pleased to have received instructions to sell the complete contents listed in both volumes, as well as additional ancillary equipment and spares not mentioned in the original publication.

Comprising many examples of diving helmets, pumps, suits, knives and accessories from makers such as Siebe Gorman, Heinke, Draeger, Morse, Schrader and many others, the live bidding format of the auction will provide worldwide access to the auction for all diving enthusiasts.

The collection will be sold as The Pardoe Collection Sale on 15th June 2016.
