    Unfortunately Trev the war had only an indirect effect on modern day pensions, its all down to economics, "factory gate output" or what can individual Countries afford.

    However there is a war connection.

    In 1948, President Truman signed the Economic Recovery Act of 1948. It became known as the Marshall Plan, named for Secretary of State George Marshall, who in 1947 proposed that the United States provide economic assistance to restore the economic infrastructure of postwar Europe. Get the economies running again.

    It just so happens that the largest recipient of Marshall Plan money was the United Kingdom (receiving about 26% of the total), followed by France (18%) and West Germany (11%). Some eighteen European countries received Plan benefits including Switzerland, which I have never understood.

    It was in fact the Marshall plan that kick started the national health service.

    Hope that helps soothe your ire.

    2 or 3 times the UK pension. Do you think they paid 2 or 3 times as much in taxes?

    Takes a British worker 5 days output to achieve what a German or Frenchman does
    in 4 days. Perhaps that has something to do with it ? J. Stiglitz he's got the answer.

    The prediction for my state pension is about 10,000 even though some of the time I've been contracted out, my mothers state pension was over 200 per week.

    You have to admit that's probably preferable to being poor old Victor.
