Subject: RE: Loss of pay
Try Again !

I've been a few miles, I've crossed a few stiles.
I've been round the world, there and back.
But one place I struck, 'tween here and hard luck,
they stung me for five and a zack.

In Australia, five and a zack was five shillings and six pence in pre-decimal coinage.
