The first such Divinhood was fairly simple and is shown below.

                                                                                                                   Second style of Miller Dunn diving helmet. Called the Divinhood Style 2                                                                                                                              Navy Standard. These helmets generally were used before World War 2. During the 1940’s Miller Dunn produced their most popular diving helmet, the Divinhood Style 3. These helmets had a large glass window on the front along with view windows on the sides and top. This helmet would be their best design and also their last.  Many of these antique helmets were used by the US Navy during World War 2.  Usually these helmets were used when doing repairs on ships in dock.  After the war, there were lots of surplus helmets on the market, making them popular with commercial divers during the 1950’s.

Miller Dunn also manufactured the Mark V for the US Navy During World War 2. We have some additional information and photos on our Mark V page. Lastly, Miller Dunn did offer a hand powered two cylinder air pump. One person would stand and rock the metal handle, pumping air to the diver. These pumps are actually fairly common as they were built quite well. Below is a photo of one of these pumps called the No 1. We are always interested in buying these pumps.
