Airmans Pay account Nov 1962

Thanks to Philip Crook W4275291 for his pay account from November 1962.
Philip says "Compare Idris Owen's 1954 pay of 2/9s with my 1962 6/18/3d, and my later pay, as an SAC net pay of 9/12/6d!"

Airmans Pay 1967/68

Thanks to Philip Crook W4275291 for this.
Philip says "This is about six years after RAF Bridgnorth, but it shows how RAF pay had increased since National Service days! something like 8 per week extra, but notice how much Income Tax has increased, as ever! About twelve months later I was promoted to Corporal, approx. another 10 weekly, but then we started to pay for our food and accommodation, the 'Military Salary' !"
