Jane Hartley… His daughter is my next door neighbour.
Marcus J Lamb-Bentley… Why’s it priced in guineas
Mick O’Dowd… Marcus, that was the posh way in those days and actually made it look cheaper than it was. A guinea was 21/- (£1.05) and worked out at 39x £1,05 and therefore greater than £39!
Nigel Ford… Mother had them out to mend her twin-tub (in Battle) and we bought a reconditioned washing machine from them when first married 42 years ago….. even though I was a “mod”….. geddit?.
Dave Weeks… We had a posh Grundig
