BUTLINS CLACTON 1961
EPISODE 2 - Red in the Blood
In Part 1 we plotted the many holidays the Brownley family had at Butlins Clacton between 1949 and 1960.
In this episode, Gay fulfills her dream job, and becomes a Butlins Redcoat.
When we first met
Gay she was just
a fully-blossomed eighteen year old.
Now Gay was working on the Entertainments team, there was more time to spend with her favourite Redcoats from the year before, when she had been on holiday at Clacton. These included ....
And Roger - who had put that bike to good use again. But which one had she come back for??
There were also new girlfriends to spend time with, like Redcoat Eileen.
Gay's sister, too, had made friends.
But let's not forget there were Redcoat duties to perform.
Then there was the Redcoat Show.
And after the show was some cameraderie with your teammates.
Gay returns for the 1962 season
