A MAN said his late father was always one for larking about when he recognised him in this Golden Years picture.

Geoff Taylor, of Cortis Avenue, Broadwater, spotted his dad pool-side in two pictures from July, 1980.

The 54-year-old said his dad was a lifeguard, and was completing some training at the former National and Provincial Building Society, which is now Centenary House, in Durrington, Worthing.

He said: “It was a life saving exercise for Worthing Lifeguards, which my father was a member of.

“They used to use different swimming pools to do their training, and that was one of them.”

Talking about the picture where his dad, who was 56 at the time, was doing a somersault, Geoff added: “He was always one for larking around.”
