As a serving member of the Royal Navy Mine Clearance branch, I know what it means to have good coffee – it makes the best days brilliant and the bad days bearable. It’s why I decided to set up Bubblehead Barista, bubblehead, because that’s what they call us divers in the Navy, and barista, because we’re all about sourcing the best coffee and delivering it direct to you. We can also hook you up with everything you need to make your coffee, from a home espresso machine and grinder to an on-the-go portable setup. Or maybe it’s just a bit of free advice you’d like, in which case just pick up the phone or ping us an email, there’s nothing we like to do more than chat coffee. So whether you’re on board your ship, far out on the oilrigs or feet up shore-side, Bubblehead Barista has everything you need. And for each bag sold, a donation will be made to the Royal Navy Clearance Divers Association (RNCDA). Stay safe, stay healthy and stay in good coffee,

Any Questions please contact James Shell (shelly) on any of the addresses bellow

The Diving Museum

The Diving Museum is an outreach project of the Historical Diving Society and it is manned entirely by volunteers.

It is not yet popularly known, but Gosport is the home of the global diving industry. The co-inventor of the diving helmet, John Deane, lived in Gosport from 1835 to 1845 during which time he discovered the Mary Rose. The first diving helmet ever sold by the inventors was to a Gosport mariner, Henry Abbinett. Gosport represents a natural home for the country’s premier historical diving museum.

From ancient times man has reaped the natural treasures of the oceans – pearls and coral have been collected since at least 5000 BC. The 18th century saw an explosion of interest in recovering treasures from sunken vessels. Experimentation with diving bells was followed by the invention of the diving helmet in the 19th century – commercial diving was born. After the Second World War, sport diving became popular. Today, divers can work at depths as great as 300 m doing everything from military operations, oilfield support, salvage and construction to fish farming, archaeology, research – and even just for fun! From ancient to modern, it’s all at The Diving Museum.

Welcome to Carorum, the latin for Loved Ones.

When you loose a loved one and you want to hold on to that love forever Carorum gives you the opportunity to have a small part of the ashes cast into a pen for you to hold and cherish forever.

An ambitious project to install a long-overdue memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to recognise the work undertaken by Military Divers Past, Present and Future. The 10 foot Bronze statue will depict a diver wearing a Siebe Gorman (Admiralty Pattern) 6-Bolt Standard diving dress. It will commemorate the dangerous work undertaken by all military divers who have served their country.
The entire project will be funded by the sale of 300 x Limited Edition (numbered), Bronze (metal), Exact Replica Statuettes mounted on a solid granite base. These stunning works of art will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity and each person who receives one will also receive an invitation to attend the unveiling reception at the National Memorial Arboretum.
