My Dad - a Memory of Aldershot.

My dad was a life guard here, l'm guessing a few years before l was born. Many happy memories of being here with my cousin, though bikini top shifting whilst getting out of the pool wasn't good in my teenage years.

Have to add also - another awful moment at the Bathing Pool, again as a young teenager. I had jumped in at the deep end a few times and got out and was walking away when a man tapped me on the shoulder and pointed out that my costume needed adjusting. I looked down and to my horror, the top of the costume was round the side of me. I fled away and again, missed most of that season also.....

My worst moment at the Bathing Pool when I was fifteen years and had got dressed and was walking round the edge on my way out. A group of soldiers started catcalling and whistling and as a well brought up young lady, I stuck my nose in the air and ignored them, only to trip over my feet and fall in...... and came up to roars of laughter. I climbed out, asked a little lad to retrieve my floating handbag and then squelched on my way with as much dignity as I could muster. I didn't return for the rest of the season in case anyone recognised me...
