BUTLINLAND CALENDAR 1975

CALENDAR cover

Inside, the twelve pages displaying the months are complemented by a mixture of indoor
and outdoor scenes from various Butlins Camps.
But all is not what it seems, for the photographs inside actually originate from the 1973 season
- some earlier. As my main interest is in Skegness, I have reproduced those pages for you below:

DEC Riding School

Here's my mate Shane Norwood, who was at Skeggy for the 1972-1976 seasons.
(I believe this photo was taken in 1972.)

AUG Pig &Whistle

This is taken in the "Pig & Whistle" bar, at Skegness. In the foreground is a
gorgeous girl named Carol, who was one of the Revue Dancers. Look up
above, and you'll spot another very pretty Revue Dancer, Lynn, sat in one of
the carriages, suspended from the mini-monorail, which ran around the bar.

JUN indoor pool

I believe this is the Indoor Pool, at Skegness, but then they all look similar.
The Redcoat Lifeguard, squatting down on the partition wall, certainly
looks like John Aran, who was there in 1973.

JUN skating rink

Here on the Skating Rink at Skegness, can be seen
Chief Redcoat - Norman Cox, with Redcoat Eileen. 1973

MAR playground

And last, but by all means least, is ME - "A.J" Marriot - with two kiddies on the
roundabout. Just think, those two little girls will be over forty-years-old now!
