BUTLINS SKEGNESS 1947

This is me - HERI HARRISON.
If you are wondering why it
looks like I've got a man strapped
to my back - look below.

I first started working at Butlins Skegness in 1946, in Reception, before becoming a Redcoat in 1947.

I was a very sporty girl. Here, I'm with the roller hockey team.
(Front Row: 4th from left - in the polka-dot clown costume.)

And this one with the netball team.
I don't remember what the photographer said to make us laugh, but it obviously tickled me.

And that's me with the trophy I won in a Tennis Tournment.

But it wasn't all sport. Here, three of us Redcoats are having a good laugh
getting ready to follow the marching band into the Princes Hall.

The Princes Hall is the long building facing the Children's Playground,
so you can now work out exactly where that queue above was lined up.

In 1948 I was tranferred to Mosney, to be on the very first Redcoat team of this newly opened Camp.
Then in 1949 I returned to Skegness. What memories.
