Found I earned total of £669 - 15 - 00 for my four years 'time' less one and a half months remission for 'good conduct' ~ or was it 'King Ted's' gratuity?
How about your 'dates and monies'?
Mine dated 1st August 1960 (South American Saint Line ) were:
1st 3 months £28 15/- (after 9 months remission from Warsash)
Next year £169 only
Next Year £175 only
Last Year £200 only
Total for 3 years 3 months = £563 15/-
My father also had to pay a £50 premium which was refunded in instalments over the period, subject to good conduct reports from each master.
