Just received from Tony Miller.....

Although he worked for 2W's,  Derek Hesketh "Cyclops" was another of the characters that made the Intersub family so special and, as a diving supervisor, helped us achieve so much with so few!

Derek passed on last month, I'm not sure of the circumstances but understand he had been ill for some time.

We kept in touch and he was always enthusiastic to hear news of the Intersub people. 

His "Hello Dear Boy" booming across on channel 69 will be missed.

More sad news:- Daniel Forante (hydraulics operator) passed away just before Christmas. 

From Claudine: "Daniel was a wonderful, funny chap, and our small “club” will miss him very much. Very courageous, he came sometimes to our Marseilles house, with his wife Michèle, between two chemo therapies.

Happened across this page by accident but it brings back so many great memories. I worked on Intersub 4 in the Straits of Messina and on the survey between Tunisia and Sicily with PC 1205 and 1601 during the summer of 1979 with Bernard Lize, Gerard Charpentier, and many others. And I worked with Vance Bradley in the Gulf of Mexico in 1978. My dad ran Hyco in the early 70s and was very good friends with the Durands. My years working with this industry are my most treasured memories. Thanks for keeping it alive.

Just heard the very sad news that Lloyd Jasper passed away, recently, in New York. A great guy, a real gentleman.

Greetings from sunny Portland Marina in Dorset!
Jim Kelly has recently sent me some terrific photos taken when he was a lockout diver on board InterSub Three, which I will soon be uploading to the website.
In the meantime - have a great Summer!

Nutty Carr died on the morning of 6th April 2016,  in a home near Chichester, of prostate cancer which had spread to his bones. 
Bob Hudson visited him shortly before he died.  Nutty was not a religious man and did not want a service or funeral. He donated his body to science and it has been accepted by the Bristol Anatomy School to where it has been shipped.

nice to see this website site up.

I had the privilege to serve onboard InterSub Three when it had PC1202 lashed to it back in the mid 70s.

What an awesome combination they were!

Would love to hear from anybody who was onboard then.

I have just received over 1500 InterSub photos from Claudine and there are another 2000 in the pipeline. It's an amazing archive and one I'm sure you will find interesting. I'll be uploading samples over the winter months. In the meantime, let me know if there is anything you would particularly like to see.

We have Claire Durand, daughter of JFD and Claudine's Son Christophe, staying with us for three weeks, which is wonderful. She has the Durand 'sparkle' - a lovely young lady with a great, caring sense of humour.

Thanks Rob - good to hear from you - am currently working on the Perry chapter of my book - Minisub - the evolution of the deep-diving manned submersible, which is an update of my 1974 Pre-InterSub thesis at the University of Plymouth. Can I send you the draft chapter for inspection?

Hi all, I had the great pleasue and honour of working with some of you guys in 1979 with special regards to Thoedore Jaynes and Roy Purdy. I do believe this experience may have been the one that tipped me into entering the gates of B.R. N. C. Dartmouth in May the following year!

I was initially a submarine electronics technician with Intersub, and moved on to Lock-out Pilot.  I was there from '76 to late '80.  Enjoyed working with a lot of really great people!
