Hi DocBoink, Check this pictures of one of the swimmers of 40SM during a pickup from an
USN submarine. This guy has a very nice visorhousing on his HGU-55/P. Fouga, maybe you can
get a visorhousing from them? The helmetshell is an HGU-55/P which is relative easy to
get. By the way Fouga, are you interested in a Belgian AF Immersionsuit? I have one which I
will trade or sell. Let me know if you're interested.
All the best, Venz

Nice TV series. Every friday at 1.40PM Local Time at the TROS (Nederland 2). For the
people who can receive Dutch Television :-) By the way: The swimmer/rescueman is wearing a
Dutch suit (Blue red diving suit). This man (Huub Stapel) plays a Dutch exchange
swimmer/rescueman in this serie. The helmet he have in his hands is an HGU-55 with dual
visor housing, as it is in use with the 40SM (40Sqn) of the Belgian Airforce. See the
attached picture of a mechanic in one of the Sea Kings of 40 Smaldeel BAF.
