Holiday Camp Gets Going Again- Everyday Life at a Butlin's Holiday Camp, Filey, Yorkshire, England, UK, 1945
Women take part in the 'Holiday Lovelies' parade in the sunshine beside the swimming pool at Butlin's Holiday Camp, Filey. One woman at a time takes to a plinth to show off her 'loveliness'. The parade is led by ex-ATS instructress Billie Wells (right) who now works at the camp. According to the original caption, "the 'Lovelies' parade draws the biggest crowd of the crowded Butlin week to the Camp swimming pool".

The UK Ministry of Information was established in 1939, at the outbreak of World War II. It was responsible for coordinating and controlling all government information and propaganda, both within the UK and abroad. The Ministry of Information was created to help the government communicate with the public and to ensure that important information was disseminated effectively. It was also responsible for managing the media and censoring certain types of information that might be harmful to morale or national security. The Ministry of Information played a crucial role in shaping public opinion during the war, and it worked closely with other government departments to develop and implement a range of propaganda campaigns. The Ministry of Information was dissolved in 1946, following the end of World War II.
