All that lovely pensionable pay

Post by Robbyjohn »

I was reading a post earlier when someone had commented on the amount of his pension and lump sum, for 40 yrs service some one had replied that it did not add up but you have to be of a certain age to remember when everything was pensionable.
Night allowance,driving allowance double time, oh do you remember overtime 1st 6 hours @time and a quarter 2nd 6 hours @ time and a half and anything after that was DOUBLE time. Oh and don't forget the double time and half for bank holidays
Those were the days my friends I worked on new st station in Birmingham do you remember when mail went by train,
The up spl top the down spl tpo the Derby Bristol so on and so on

Yes I remember that. Sunday Duty/overtime was pensionable too. I used to work most Sundays, until it ceased to be pensionable. :sad:
