Working alongside Sir Billy Butlin on several occasions, Bab's has a great deal of knowledge about Butlins. Representing the Redcoats to a high standard, Bab's continues the Sir Billy Butlin spirit to this very date. I am so very lucky to be able to call Babs a friend.
Bab's name is Madeleine, it was changed at Butlins as it was too long. At Minehead, the first two weeks, Madeleine was known as Lena, then when she was moved to Clacton she had to hand everything back including the Lena badge. Arriving at Clacton, Madeleine was given the name Babs.
The Butlins story for Babs started with her Mum and Dad. Two marvelous people who had shown their daughter about the Sir Billy Butlins Sprit, This photo was taken in 1949 in Skegness with the original chalets in the background.
Doris & Harry Palmer had enjoyed performing the dancing competitions at Butlin's. Showing everyone how the dancing is to be done correctly, Doris and Harry had the very spirit of Sir Billy Butlin within them.
Butlin's was the place where Babs, Doris, and Harry had enjoyed a great deal. In this photo, they had ventured to Filey and was having a great time. This fantastic photo shows you the power of the Butlin's name.
On this photo, you can see Babs dad on the front left and Babs mum in the front right. Bab is sitting next to her mum. This was taken with Babs was about 7. It would be either Filey or Skegness.
With the live music playing, the dancing compeitions was the entertainment they loved a great deal. On this photo, they had just won Veleta heat.
Not in Butlins, this is a photo of Doris with Babs at Loch Katrine. Glasgow main Water supply. This was taken in 1970.
It was this photo, taken in 1949 when Babs had known that she was becoming a Redcoat in the future. The smile on Babs face here says it all.
