Steve’s work in the Armed Forces

Steve joined the Royal Marines at the age of 17. His Father had wanted to join but was too tall. He was very pleased when Steve got in and took home a parachute. He was in the Paratroopers for six years and travelled to the Sudan, South Africa, and Belize. He earned £11 6d. in his first job.
