Notes

Though visibly similar to the earlier models, the raised window allows for better viewing while moving the air intake to the rear thus prevented irritation to the divers face, the baffle plate directs the air stream to prevent fogging. See page 7, vol 1, 'Diving Helmets and Equipment Through the Ages'.
