The formation of URG

Taken from Spearfishing News December 1953

“A step very much in the right direction was the recent formation by the committee of The Underwater Research Group. Its activities will include safety research, correctly conducted tests of the penetrative power of various spearguns, underwater photographs, specimen collection, breathing gear etc. Among URG’s Members are such names as Lawson, Wells, Barton and the convenor is none other than Mr Godfrey Leonard Gapp (Alias Goff).”
