Coming late to this thread - was 16 then, just done my O levels and presumably was still waiting for results. Probably had just discovered the joys of cider and which off licences you could get it from. No ciggies till I was 18 though, wasn't I a good boy(-:).
Bob, happily retired(-:)

Brill Galatas, one of my favourite sketches.
The truth is I'm mad. We are all mad and many are too mad to know the truth.
I was twelve at the time of that tax disc. Decimal money came in early 1971 when I was 15. I remember the jingles on the TV done by The Scaffold, to help people convert between the systems and use up their old coins. We used to sing slightly rude versions of some of them ...
I also have a framed set of the old money. It can be very educational. The beauty of it was (when it had REAL value) that you could divide a pound so many more ways than 100 pence. When I remember the old 12-sided thrupenny bit I also remember how those big old coins felt like a ton weight in your pocket and wore holes in them!
We're a lot softer these days. I can't imagine being without gas central heating now, but I remember ice on the insides of the windows, with only one coke fire and a back boiler, and no double glazing. Lino on the bedroom floors and a paraffin heater to warm up the bathroom.
Seriously thinking about trying harder!
I remember one day walking to primary school, probably about 9 or 10 years old, finding four old pennies on a garden wall. Such was the value of every single penny in those days (1950's) that my friend and I took the pennies to the local police station and handed them in!!
I also remember the TV jingles - and the rude versions!
There are distinct similarities here, albeit this is from a 1977 LP...
