Corporal Punishment RuledI went to an all boys grammar school in the late 40s early 50s. CP was dispensed liberally - slipper, strap and, from the Head, the cane. The slipper and strap were always present during class and one bent over and touched toes for one or other for the slightest 'sin'.
The Head was different,, a sadist, who delighted in giving six of the best. Your name would be called out at assembly, have to go to his study, welcomed by his secretary, interviewd and then led into the inner sactum where he dispensed his thrashing.
Once I saw him at work in a classroom, where he caned 4 boys in front of the class brutally. Today he would be locked up for what he was doing!
