The inflation rate has risen by 4529% since 1939 if you earned £4.97 that equates to £230 today.The rate rose 52% between 1939-1945. so £230=7.55. Doubt they earned that,hope this helps

Why didn't the US national debt from World War 2 cause hyperinflation?

America instituted many price and wage controls during World War II to hold down inflation. Rent control got its start during the war and employers starting offering benefits such as health insurance to bypass wage controls. Shortages did occur and life was quite tough for those back home during the war. Once the wage controls were released after the war, prices did increase significantly. Prices went up 37 percent from 1944 and 1948, about the equivalent of the increase from 1976 to 1980.
