The Bomber Reef

In memory: Walt Deas passed away May 2008

Walt Deas has been diving since 1950 when he dove with a Navy Oxygen rebreather, until the aqualung became available. In 1953, he was a founder member of the first scuba diving club in Scotland (Dundee). After moving to Australia, he became an internationally famous underwater photographer film maker and author.
