    I thought i would let you know that i am the diver in the film, (Peter Madden, and the other guy is Doug Mayo, who sadly died over five years ago. I remember us making this film with the film crew saying we could see it on ssuch and such a date on television, but we never saw it. This is the first time i have seen it. Thank you very much for putting it on facebook.
    Doug and I plus another guy i can`t clearly remember were the Thames conservancy West area diving team, doing routine work on the lock gates sluice gear at the time.
    Sincerely, Peter.
