During the day I was swimming instructor for the "Learn to swim at Butlins" scheme,
sponsored by the News of the World.

Sometimes, there were bigger fish to fry.

When not at the pool, I would do regular Redcoat duties.

The lady in 3rd place in the "Glamorous Grandmother"
competition seems to have become quite attached to me.

Some rather younger contestants in the
"Miss Young Debutante" competition.

Sometimes, a girl picked ME up.

Sometimes, I picked up a boy - but only for laugh.
[The other Redcoat is GORDON BLOWER, from Liverpool.]

Bringing a bit of joy to an older camper.
(Viennese Ballroom)

Hoping a more glamorous camper
will bring a bit of joy to me.
