Once 'pon time (way back in the olden days) it used to be the Royal Navy.... .

So 'WarfareSpecialistToBe' - When was it changed to the 'Roayl Navy', then?

This might sound a bit stupid but here it goes. Is there a freediving club as Gosport ?, reason I ask is there seem to be quite a few Youtube clips showing the divers at Gosport SETT tank.

Enjoy the videos. I take it that you are aware that you won't be undergoing most of what you'll see...

EDIT: I see we posted at the same time...no, you won't do this training (the swimming/ascending bit)

When the MoD made part of Horsea Lake available to civilian sub-aqua divers, certain BSAC licensed organisations included a trip to the SETT as part of a weekend recreational diving package. Free ascents were conducted in the early days. The arrangement ceased in 2008 after the system was abused by some of the clientele.

My mate has done a few free dives at SETT, but says it's shit, as the water is too warm.
