Probably true. The Navy had corporal punishment for boys up until the '70's. It was usually adminstered in multiples of 6 cuts and was always across the arrse stretched over a chair with full force. Cannot remember anyone ever going back for seconds :lol:

When I joined boys in 1966 we had a training sergeant who remembers being birched; he had to bend over a horse in the gym and the provost sergeant administered it.
Happy days! :(

Apart from the person administering it perhaps? Was there a sound instructional reason for their wearing respirator and gas cape whilst delivering the punishment?

On further research not sure if reliable..... it appears the cane was still used at the old AAC at Chepstow during the mid 1960's!!!
