War bonus for a Binfield nurse

Nurses got a pay rise in Binfield.

At a meeting of the executive committee held in the parish room on Wednesday Oct 31st 1916 …

The minutes were read and signed. It was thought advisable to give Nurse Ryley a War bonus of £5.00. Proposed by Mrs Williams and seconded by Miss Knipe, that it be recommended to the quarterly committee.

Mrs Gibson represented a family who thought they ought not to pay 4/- as their earnings were much more than last year. It was decided not to alter the rules.
