POSTCARD REDS

The photographers who took the snaps for Butlins' postcards, nearly always employed the presence of at least one Redcoat in shot. But who were these Redcoats?
Were you one, or do you know the names of any of the Redcoats in the postcards here?
If so, please email me via the envelope icon below.
You can also send in any postcards you have, which aren't already featured.
Happy Snappys!

BUTLINS SKEGNESS 1973

A.J MARRIOT - One morning, during my 1973 Season at Butlins Skegness, I was told by the Entertainments Manager, Alan Ridgway, that he was excusing me morning duties, and that I was to escort a photographer around the camp. Every now and then he would spot a scene he liked, and then snap away. A few times he asked me to go and find some children to pose with. My duties over, I wished him adieu, and thought nothing more of it. Imagine my surprise, therefore, when sometime later (it may even have been the following season) I went into the camp shop to buy some postcards, and was presented with a selection on which I was featured on FOUR of them. I immediately bought a dozen of each the two best ones (above) and sent them off to near friends and family. And that was that - GONE. Now, however, thanks to the wonders of eBay, I have been able to retrieve a few of those 'lost mementos' all these years on.

Now scroll down to find other Redcoats who were privileged to be representing Butlins,
on postcards sent all over the world.
