A team of twelve Red Coats stride towards the camera, arm-in-arm in the sunshine, as they prepare for another days work at the Butlin's Holiday Camp at Filey. The job of the Red Coats, according to the original caption, is "to see to it that each individual camper has a jolly time, twelve hours on end, each day of the Butlin hospitality". They are walking past the Gloucester House Dining Hall, located on the south side of the camp.
