Company Clerks

Postby Wladek » Thu Mar 11, 2010 4:12 pm

OK. hardly anyone looks to write about these valiant and underrated fellows as I have spent a lot of the day trawling around and finding almost squat.

So, what do those who pass through here know? What would they be issued when clerking? did they print a little manual for them? What were their daily tasks?

The main bits of info I found were from the people's war BBC thing - though their memories tend to be about shenanigans and being wryly amused by things.

You know, I think it's only fair that you should have to ask me to submit paperwork for your medicinal ointments and tobacco ration in real life Nige. :whistle:

I'm not registered as a clerk. Do they come in 2-tone?

I saw a bit of film the other day with G Bernard Shaw typing away at my very own typewriter.
Well, I say my typewriter. Thinking about it - it was the same model as mine but couldn't have been the one I possess since mine only types gibberish and GBS's seemed to type lucid and inciteful text... :lol:
