Costing clerk at the Star and Garter – by JP

But anyway it was really, they were training us for office work and when we were 14 they really gave us a grammar school education and then we were taught shorthand and typing and commercial arithmetic, bookkeeping, all very useful stuff for the times and for getting a job that kind of thing, and we left school at 15 and were paid next to nothing and gave it all to our mothers, but there were still clothing coupons there was nothing to spend our money on really, yes 1945. I worked up in London for a couple of years but got fed up with the trains and I got a job at the Star & Garter Home working for the Steward as a costing clerk and typist and that kind of thing
