Incredible Navy Divers: Life On The Edge


Formats & editions


Rising out of the Second World War, the Australian clearance diver has become one of the most respected and versatile operators in the military world.

Rising out of the Second World War, the Royal Australian Navy clearance diver has become one of the most respected and versatile operators in the military world. Life on the Edge is just one thrilling episode in their remarkable and courageous history.

This incredible true-life adventure story, taken from the highly acclaimed Navy Divers by Gregor Salmon, looks at the early training for the divers in the mid-1950s, when Australia had its first navy clearance diving team. From the eighteen starters, six had withdrawn during the gruelling course and one had deserted the navy altogether. The success of the unit had become the collective cause of the eleven newly qualified clearance divers.
