This rather ingenious device, was the key element to Bond's staged
death and sea burial.
At the end of Bond's stage funeral service aboard a British naval
ship, the body wrap containing Bond was thrown overboard. When
the body wrap had sunk to the bottom of the sea, it was recovered
by scuba divers, and taken aboard the M1 Submarine, the body wrap
was cut open, to reveal Bond inside a waterproof plastic bag.
The bag was opened, and Bond's breathing mask taken from his mouth,
Bond stood up, brushed off his uniform and requested permission
The body wrap was made out of canvas, with a waterproof polystyrene
backing. Inside the body wrap, Bond lay inside a sealed plastic
bag, and was wearing a oxygen mask, which supplied up to forty
five minutes of breathing time.
