Diving into a Tank of Water.

I believe that I took this photograph at Butlins Camp Skegness. I think I also saw him at a Fair in Mansfield. I cannot remember his name or the name of his act.

He used to dive /or fall into the shallow tank of water from the top of the tower…┬áCan anyone remember ??

  • My family and I went to the Open Day too. So I guess that is where I took the Picture…The Rig/Derrick appears to be the same as that used by Peg leg Pete at that time. The two platforms,one at the top, and one two thirds up, were the two heights he dived from…Could it be that it was hired from the Council for him to perform ?

  • This is BP Eakring open day in 1962 showing the gas council rig on display. I was the rig engineer on duty.

  • The name has come to me…He was called Peg Leg Pete. It is possible that he may have lived in Mansfield?
