First years wages was 5.16.8
maybe they stopped filling out discharge books later on.

my old discharge book records me starting from Sunderland on the maiden voyage of the Yewbank but that is crossed out and Capt Mitchell has put Suva instead as I had been promoted to Act 3/O. However all the other apprenticship entries are recorded as served
