Re: PS

my kind of job.

"Clipping" or "Slipping"?

"No particular work" sounds like "dogsbody".

Try enquiring here:


The correct term for "No particular work" was "on-cost". What it means is
that the man worked where required. The best paid jobs were faceworkers,
they were the most dangerous but behind there was a large number of men
doing all sorts of different jobs such as keeping the water levels down,
maintaining the ventilation and so on. There were many specialist jobs but a
large number of men were required for simple manual labouring, these men
would normally be described as working "on-cost".
