Not a penny for nine years

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

NAVY vet­eran Barry Cuckow, 76, gets no cash from nine years of ser­vice that ended in 1969. The for­mer lead­ing ra­dio op­er­a­tor, pic­tured right, who went on to work for the Gov­ern­ment in­tel­li­gence nerve cen­tre GCHQ, said: “I have a civil ser­vant pen­sion but noth­ing from the Navy, even though I paid into a mil­i­tary pen­sion for five years of my ser­vice. There are lots of peo­ple strug­gling. I’m OK fi­nan­cially by com­par­i­son, but I’m do­ing this for those peo­ple who re­ally need it.”
