Boy sailor, 5shilling a week (25p) and the other 30s (£1.50) kept for when you went on leave and sent to your mam. It was all found though so you didn't have to pay anything out. The 5 bob was spent on nutty and pop. To be honest it may even have been 5s a fortnight, my memory aint what it used to be. I'll check up on the Ganges site.
One funny thing is that I had been getting more on my paper round before joining up, not as adventurous though.
