TO REUNION OR NOT TO REUNION
THAT IS THE QUESTION
By Mike Webber
I would like to put forward further thoughts on my previous.
Since the introduction of income tax in 1799, the earners in the population
have paid tax to pay for something! In 1908 taxes were paid to fund
an 'Old age pension'. This has led to the fact that the working population
have in effect paid the 'cost' of old age.
To fund a PROPER reunion annually at the R.M.S of M wherever that
may be, would require a levy of £1 (ONE) per week per bandsman!
This would raise 15 to 20K per annum to fund a reunion worthy of the
name. This must be "SOLD" to the present heirachy and would
mean that EVERY serving member would be assured of a worthy reunion
when they retire!
