Pensioners Against Duchatelet (PAD)

We have had CARD, WAR, and now ROT

but nothing specifically for those over 65 who used to walk to, or bus it to The Valley in the 50s or early 60s before the days when every family had a Car.

Well, enough is enough! Duchatelet himself is 70 and he is always dismissive of the 'young' and their opinions as he puts it - even when those 'opinions' happen to be the bare facts exposing his mis-management of Charlton. He cannot so easily dismiss his contemporaries.

So, Pensioners Against Duchatelet (PAD for short)
welcomes those of a certain age who wish to make their displeasure with RD more high profile but in a way which befits their senior years

Read on....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order that we (PAD) is not subverted by what may be termed younger elements
we will be asking prospective members to complete a short quiz in order to prove their eligibility.

Therefore:
1) a popular Post-WWII meal item on a Monday evening would be Bread and ********. Fill in the missing word.
2) When did rationing officially end in the UK after WWII?
3) Were you able to spend a Victorian penny in 1954 (i.e. was Victorian coinage still in circulation in 1954 - yes or no?
4) The Festival of Britain was in which year, 1951, 1952 or 1953?
5) What is an Allotment?
6) Henry Irving's best cardigan dates from which decade - the 50s or the 60s?

Answer these questions without looking them up on Goggles or whatever it is called, and you're in.
NB. Family members, relations and associates of Henry Irving over the age of 65 are excluded from joining.
