I just happen to think of this breather. Which I've seen in war flicks that involved submariners durning the war with Germany. And are they still use to day, maybe a newer model.

My grandfather, Bernard Samuels, flutist, in 1911 invented a device for assisting players of wind instruments in sustaining long notes. This device he called "aerophor".
I have various times come across this name as designating an apparatus used in the mining industry.
Has my grandfather known about the existence of the name "aerophor" in its latter sense? There is no documentation about this whatsoever. As an inventor, he may himself also have invented the name for his invention. On the other hand, there is no reason to exclude that he was aware of the existence of the name "aerophor" for an apparatus used in the mining industry.

Well done a great find. I worked for Siebe Gorman until 1969. Then Deep Sea Engineering (Company formed by ex SG people0. Then taken over by La Las Spirotechnique in London and then Paris as Manager of the UK arm of the Safety Division. in 1976/77 the whole caboodle was combined with Fenzy, also part of the Air Liquid empire. I left to set up my own diving and safety company in Worthing Sussex. Some timer later I understand Air Liquid decided to cut and run and put everything into the US Diver Aqualung brand. Not sure what happened to the Safety BA Side although another company Fernez was involved with the development of the Rubber/Neoprene Mask side.)(Heinke did the same for SG). TheBy the way see Ursula Andress coming out of the sea in Dr No - the cork handled diver's knife was an Siebe Gorman product - I have it in my cabinet! (But is it the real one?).

Alan Cooke - HMS Vernon eh?
Went there a couple of times with trial apparatus. Now eat Burger Kings on the site! How sad. Visited the Submarine Museum at Gosport a while ago. Incidentally my office at Siebe Gorman Chessington was next to Capt. Bill Shelford (WW11 X craft).
