Apparently there is still one left, I think it's in the US but is still trading. At one point there were thousands of shops all over the world.
It is in Bend, Oregon, and is now listed on Air B n B offering "Movie Stopovers" !

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Travel warrant....A common item years ago,usually issued by HM Armed Forces to staff or by companies to staff on business.
The times I used them(late 1970s)you exchanged the warrant for a return train ticket at the station or showed it to a bus conductor(that dates it😁)who then issued a return ticket.
Nowadays people would just put the travel cost on their expenses & claim it back I would imagine.

Nope. Travel warrants are still issued

Hunkered down
Just received one from DVLA. What a pain, as I'll have to go in to town to put it in my account.

Maybe I'll get to speak to a human and complain about not being able to do this on the app.
Some cheques can be photocopied and sent online by phone I think. Management does this so I am clueless on procedures. Think there may be a money limit.
