dig them wollen trunks
I had some woollen trunks too, I remember coming out of the sea at Blackpool (you did not swim at Blackpool you just went through the motions) and although the trunks were still on my waist the bottom bit was dragging on the sand. I still have them, they fit me perfectly now !!
That's a very good description of Blackpool sea and what happened with them wooly cossies whilst swimming Gary. Had a good laugh at that.
my mother inlaw told me that lots of people used an old jumper and sowed it up where needed ,we have many a laugh about one of the lads went to the baths with them and the water just weighed them down and they bursted open all over.
They might have all this Lycra and designer names now but I don't think they have half as much fun.
I have just checked my swimming costume, and being over 50 years old I find there is a hole in it......................................in the elbow
No matter what swim wear they had on ... they sure do look happy and having some fun!
