Registration Number H41187
Classification CH classification MARITIME TECHNOLOGY Diving Diver's helmet
Name or Title Diving Helmet
Production Place Australia
Production Date 1928-1929
History and Use

This ‘home made’ galvanised metal helmet was referred to as the ‘Ned Kelly’ by the scientists who used it on the 1928-29 Great Barrier Reef expedition to Low Isles, off Port Douglas. It was constructed with galvanised iron (probably in Queensland) specifically for the expedition. The angle of the breastplate in relation to the helmet enabled the wearer to view the seabed easily. This helmet allowed the scientists to conduct the first underwater surveys of the reef.
