Harry: Mind you they did all the bathing on the, on the Basement… then, at time round by the, round by where the canteen is.
Frank: 6 patients in one bath of water
Harry: On right hand side, round by where the canteen is, staff canteen.
SC: So you said 6 patients used a bath at once – I mean not at once but they used the same water one after the other presumably, is that right?
Frank: Yes, yes.
SC: How many people – was it a huge great bath house or what…
Frank: Yes, yes it was fairly big…
Harry: Yes it was a big bathroom.
Frank: About 6 baths in weren’t there?
Harry: … 6 baths: 3 on each side I think.
Frank: Yes. And a channel, you know, all the way round –
Harry: Running round all the way…
NI: Could you take as long as you wanted over a bath or were sort of told to get out after a certain time?
Frank: No you was told to get out after you had been in for so long. And then another lad’d get in.
NI: And the water would be the same?
Frank: In the same water. There would be about six in one lot of water.
Harry: They never used to change the water.
Frank: There was many a time when it was right – dirty
Harry: Same water.
