An Early Pittance

by Roy Grant 22 August 2009

When I left school in 1958, my weekly take home pay as an Allen West apprentice was 2 pounds 16 shillings and tuppence halfpenny. My mother took 30 shillings and I lved on the rest. How the hell did I do it?
Can any of you remember what you took home in the early days?
