We had a rise in OAP last Monday. Ethel went to the PO & drew £25.00. £12,50 a week for Husband & Wife.
OAP stands for Old Age Pension. PO stands for Post Office. For more detail of their finances, in general, and their pensions, in particular, see Chapter 104.
Ethel refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.
