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.

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.
