Re: Benefit Boot Co Jarrow
The scourge was that boots were "popped".
Poor children could get free boots (I think from the Police Station in Clervaux Tce) but they soon found they went to the pawnbroker!!
I have tried to get corroboration of that memory but have failed thus far. No doubt someone on the board will know too.
