Response to Explain 'Splash' to me.

were supposed to wear protective clothing, which were thick leather overalls. These were rarely worn in practice however, because the tanks were so hot inside. They did however often wear special helmets, thick goggles and chain mail face masks to protect against splash. Looked pretty cool too..
