You sure Alec? What was around before that then? Definitely something. I joined the Pool in '72 and BP in '75. About ten years later I think it was I got a letter informing me that as I had not contributed for that period I was entitled to be reimbursed what I had paid in. Must be honest and never knew I had paid anything. Got a rebate of an extremely small amount of money. 60 stickss in mind but this was obviously many moons ago so my memory may be shot.

I was part of the new MNRPF in 1980. I was told the previous one Alec refers to collapsed around 1978 and all money was lost.
