1962 was the opening season of the Butlins Minehead Camp,
so the above is the very first entertainment team and Redcoats to work there.

Tony Walker adds:
The girls on the Front Row are the "DeVere Dancers."
No.10 is Rusty (real name Ann Allen) who is now a film extra and belly dancer.
Jenni later married Ted Rickets - the swimming instructor.
Harry (Row 2 No.11) later became Camp Comic.
Jackie started me on the trampoline so I could take over from him and give him a break.

No.7 in the Back Row is Dave, who was the drummer in the "3 Kays Trio" (Verdi 3)

We are truly grateful to PENNY HOLMES for the photo and some of the names,
and to Tony Walker for additional names.
