Ulster blank

• I worked briefly in 1961 in a small, rural town as the junior bank official at a branch of the Ulster Bank.

My main responsibility was manually totting up all remittances (cheque transactions, deposits and withdrawals of cash) each day.

I was forbidden to leave until all accounts were written up and balanced and the cheques and cash slips had been filed neatly and in alphabetical order in Stork margarine boxes.
