27th February 1941

Paid in a cheque today, and asked about the state of my accounts. I have on deposit: £200-19-10; in my current account: £13-8-5; at home in silver, (for an emergency): £20; in my pocket book: £5-10-0; making in all a total of £239-18-3. Besides this I have about £70 in superannuation money, which I can draw out if I leave the Museum. All quite satisfactory.

This is very interesting - in today's value he had £8,435 not bad considering his job!

Thanks for working this out, Mike. It puts it into perspective. No wonder EJR could say this amount was 'All quite satisfactory'! CP
