Half Banana , Albert Broad was quite right then ! LOL.
I remember a conversation I had with him in the early 70's, which I thought was a bit off at the time, as we were heading for 1975, but he was talking about how at the end of his time as a C. O there would be nothing for him and Madge, his slightly strange, but nice, wife.
No Pension or any help from the JW Org, just put out to pasture, and that Pasture paid for by JW's with some heart, not the Org. He was not that old at the time, but he was obviously something of a realist. Poor bastard was right on that too, they, the Org did sod-all for him. He had spent his whole adult life in their service. Heartless bastards.
