Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One of the best things I found in your account was the description of the health clinic cum cafeteria and recreational lounge to which all retirees, including forced early retirees could come. That alone had to be a balm to the soul for those forced into retirement.
Did you have a role in getting that in place?
