Your correspondent, T.N.J.. may be a poor soldier now that he has spent £100 on a motor cycle. However, until the police locate it I would advise him not to blame our essential workers, who received, according to him. £10 or £11 per week. I have been rejected for the Army, Air Force and Navy, as grade 3 and hold trade qualifications. -1 have worked at pressures of 23001b per square inch, and tolerances as fine as .0005 per inch, day and night, and did my bit of fire watching without payment. I have never received £10 or £11 per week for seven clays or nights' hard exacting toil and when on 40 hours have received under £5 per week. I don't even get priority for a State house. ESSENTIAL WORKER.
