    I got baptized in 1981. At that time I and most other brothers wore "squarecut" swimsuits and were shirtless. It was common for sisters to wear bathing suits. Everyone would run to view the baptisims....because we wanted to see.

    Scandalous, I say.

    I used to cringe at the sight of these "sisters" casting off their robes to descend into the pool in their swimming costumes ..It seemed in poor taste . I knew a girl who was totally commited but put off baptism for years because she could not stand the thought of the ordeal. I mentioned it once to our old P O who said "yeah.. it is meant to be a public demonstration of your faith, not your body" !

    Nic, I wonder wher your baptism was, I don't think that Hasebridge (Surrey) was in use in 1980, perhaps Dudley ? and man , that is not the prettiest Kingdom Hall that I have seen ...

    You and your little brother are precious.

    That KHall above you is hideous.

    So happy for you that you woke up and got out. Did your brother make the journey out as well?
