Lawson Lung (Australia)

The Lawson Lung was a copy of La Spirotechnique Cousteau-Gagnan design. La Spirotechnique licensed Siebe Gorman to make SCUBA in Commonwealth companies. Siebe could not make enough and La Spirotechnique could not sell here. Divers in Sydney made about 12 Lawson Lungs in a jewelry factory. They copied it from a model which came from Hong Kong. It breathed poorly so they mounted it on the diver's chest, to get the regulator deeper. It was made about the same time as the first Porpoise, and is the first chest mounted double hose SCUBA. There is only one known to be left, and it is in a collection in Sydney

These pictures were in the late Ted Eldred's personal collection and found in his home, by his son Tony.
