      Jill won the title of Surf Queen of Great Britain at the National Surf Life Saving Championships at Perranporth, sorry can’t remember the exact year,(about 1955/6) she was presented with her trophy by Mrs Treve Holman wife of the President of the S L S A of GB. Bude S L S C also won the Championship that year. Jill went on to win the prestigious Daily Mirror award of Deb of the Year and I believe she then went into modelling. She later married and went to live in Spain with her Spanish Husband.

  • Can anyone tell me what happened to Jill Carter after winning Miss Bude & Bude SLSC comps. I think it was back in the 50’s.
