    1 - Just me and my two parents (3).
    2 - Father was a telecommnications engineer, mother didn't work.
    3 - In my view there was much more rebellion. But then we had proper punk.
    4 - Didn't go abroad until I was 14, and that was a day trip with my school. Didn't go on first overeas holiday until I was 15. Prior to that we probably had a proper vacation only every 3 years.
    5 - Attended a boys school - so hard to know about gender differences - although I doubt the girl's school did woodwork, metalwork and rugby.
    6. Everybody went to school. Most important subject was, and still is, maths.
    7. Most married between 25 and 30 (I was 28). Wedding cost c $20,000 including honeymoon. Costs split between me and the bride's parents.

    Interested to know the reason you want to know these things.
