Memories of holidays
1. Although the impression of memory is that when I was a child we went on holiday every year to Bridlington during Whit week,[more] I remember mention being made from time to time of two holidays at Middleton Towers holiday camp in Morecambe or Heysham. But these occurred when I was too young to remember them.

2. During one of them I won a “bonny baby” competition. I have seen a photograph that was taken by the holiday-camp photographer: my Mum is carrying me but I am not a newborn baby, so I assume that this occurred on the first holiday, and that this was in 1951. (Whether this was during Whit week—if we went on the Saturday and came home the following Saturday it would be between the twelfth and the twentieth of May, 1951—or whether later, in the summer, I don’t know.) I won a stuffed toy elephant, made out of patterned or patchwork material.
