An odd badge this one, im not sure where it falls in the lexicon of Butlins. The writing is certainly a later style and this is backed up by the unique pin construction. I have only seen this in replicas, however this does not appear to be one. The badge is undated but is likely post-war and was made by Firmin, another first.

Clacton was obviously the place to bi in 1946, i don't know if there was a cloth shortage in 1946 but that swimsuit is perfectly scandalous.
This badge is intriguing to me as it shows a beachwear that i certainly would not associate with 1946 however a google names it as the year of the modern bikini!
No makers mark on this one.
