A JIM suit under water with a tethered remotely operated vehicle

One of our volunteers, Richard Castle, has been spending his lockdown time hard at work. He has set up a sparkling new website dedicated to one of our prized exhibits, the JIM suit: www.jimsuit.com

Richard was an engineer who worked on the development of JIM suits in the 1970s and 80s at the Royal Naval Physiological Laboratory which was then located just at the other end of the bay from the Museum.
