Orphan Davina Ray’s talent for diving was noticed by ex-champion Mary Lord, who invited Davina to stay with her for the summer holidays so that she could coach her for the County Championships. But Mary Lord’s daughter, Elaine, also entering the Championship, resented Davina being there. Now Mary was coaching the girls at the local baths.
Debbie’s father, Mike Nolan, is a professional skindiver, specialising in underwater jobs where the usual diving equipment is too cumbersome. From an early age, Debbie has been taught to use an aqua-lung, and now she assists her father in his newly-formed Underwater Enterprises Company.
Debbie and her father, return in Debbie and the Drowned Village. The two travel to Llanberan, in Wales, where unexplained accidents are holding up the completion of a new dam. Mike and Debbie believe the accidents are the work of a man who doesn’t want the dam built. While Bill Parry, the engineer in charge of the project, is on top of the dam, the bucket on a crane swings round and causes him to fall into the reservoir. He doesn’t surface and Debbie dives in after to save him.
