A Long time ago!!

A long time ago in the Furness Diving Club, back then known as the Furness Sub Aqua Club.

A group of hardy divers, a few still are members today. Dirk Hadwin being the longest serving member, Comming in close behind Him Rob Hughes.

Both being honorary members now.

I can`t imagine what it was like to dive in a home made wetsuit. As today we dive in drysuits with thermal under suits, to keep nice and toasty. Some dive with 15Ltr cylinders others with 12Ltr ones. I found an old cylinder of my dads still with air in and only a 10Ltr. how the hell did they do it back then? We must be soft. Anyway here is a few old photos.
