Pre 1950's Photographs of Escape Training - DSEA equipment.
Bill Wyatt (Instructor 1950-1955)
When I joined the SETT we only had the 15' tank.
After the lecture the class put on DSEA suits, the drill for using them
was carried out, they then entered the water at the top of the tank and went
under so that they could see and feel what it was like to breathe under water.

Breathing under water
In 1951 the Mark 1 immersion suit became available which improved things no end. - they were difficult to put on the same way as the shallow water diving suit.
