Anyone still get a brown envelope?
I HAVE recently had the occasion of visiting the Northwood area, which brought back memories of where I worked for a short while, while my husband was stationed at RAF Northwood years ago.
We did the wages and salaries for six local hospitals so we were kept very busy. The weekly wages were prepared in envelopes, which I’m sure a lot of your readers will remember so, once weekly the total amount (exact) would arrive by Securicor, to be placed in the envelopes. This was the old pounds, shillings and pence.
The offices were on the right, on the road up to the hospital.
I recall they had the odd show performing there; whether this was put on by staff, I can’t remember.
As I moved away to the north, I wondered if there was anyone who worked there in the mid-1960s living in the area who would like to get in touch.
The wages are all done elsewhere now, in Watford or Hillingdon.
I wonder if anyone ever receives the little envelope for wages like they used to, or has it completely gone? KATHLEEN CRAIG
