Sub-titled 'The Lives, Loves and Friendships of the Butlin's Girls', here are the stories of seven girls who worked as Redcoats from the 1950s to the 1970s. From pranks and feuds to falling in love and forging lifelong friendships, Knobbly Knees winners and beauty queens alike can now discover the touching and gloriously funny highs, lows, secrets and scandals of the real life Hi-de-Hi! Hello campers. Welcome to the world of the waitresses, bar staff, chalet-maids, chefs, kitchen porters, office staff, security men and others who kept the camps running before overseas package holidays sounded their death knell. First dates, alcohol, cigarettes and the fun of putting The Laughing Policeman inappropriately over the speakers instead of Cavatina, here are pregnancies, weddings, funerals and above all, friendship and fun. 296pp in paperback.

The book provided me with a nostalgic look at yesteryear. It is seen through the eyes of past employees and has some very amusing stories. A good read.
