European vintage diving enthusiasts, Frank Werthwein of Germany
and Jean Grepinet of France.

Jean Grepinet, using a French Royal Mistral
regulator mounted on a German Dräger seven liter tank, together with a Dräger weight belt.

In June of 2009, European "Friends of Vintage Diving" met at "Marx- Lake" near Speyer in Germany.  It is located in the middle of western Europe, so they all do not have too far to travel. So far the "Friends" have members from Holland, Poland, France and Germany. Here they are preparing for their vintage dive.

Franz Rothbrust fixing his vintage gear, a Dräger double seven and a good old "Fenzy".  The inflator is a Scubapro "Air II".

Franz's double seven liter rig from the back. The single hose regulator is a Dräger "Secor 300".

Franz wearing vintage gauges on every arm. The group had a modern equipped security diver keeping an eye on them, Uwe Heigel in the back ground.

Eric Souverville and his legendary "CG 45" which still works "like new".

Frank Werthwein had mounted a very rare "Matter" single hose regulator.

Hans Hass
Diving pioneer and real life legend Hans Hass, center, 1996. This photo was taken at the Draeger Diving Center in Travemünde, Germany (located on the shore of the Baltic Sea). Herr Hass visited the center to have his rebreather checked and repaired. It was custom made for him by Draeger. Photo by L. Krüger.

HDS (SEAP) members, in Melbourne, Australia (2008).The small center tank is the world's first single hose SCUBA, the 1952 Porpoise. The small twins are the world's second single hose, the 1954 Sea Bee. Vintage diving here usually includes these early single hose units as they predate the importation of the French style double hose to Australia.
