House of Correction Revisited (Part 1 of 2)

House Of Correction Revisited

In the austere Houses of Correction at the turn of the century discipline was rigorously maintained. For misconduct even senior lads could find themselves across an officers knee, better that though than getting reported to the governor!

 

However, 24975 Macalister (James Holt) was slow to learn his lesson and was soon ordered to be officially flogged. The governors patients had worn out and the whip was always waiting! This oiled leather instrument brought down with vigour on to a young man bare bottom soon gets him to pay attention.

Shore Based Discipline (Part 1 of 2)

Shore Based Discipline

Firm discipline at any naval training college has historically always been as very important when training young men to serve at sea. Traditionally some punishments were often laid on to the bare posteriors, especially for younger seaman and has been part of naval life going back many years. The birch, cane and cat o nine tails or boys pussy, as it was known, were all instruments used in various navies for centuries.

One NCO Mr Wyatt (James Holt) a younger member of the training team has got himself in to a spot of bother. Its after sea trials so the Captain wants to keep it of the record and sentences the young NCO to lashes of the cat o nine tails, administered in the manner of a boy seaman.

As there is no cannon to be secured over (kissing the gunners daughter) the gym vaulting horse will have to suffice, as in the case of birching in the early days at T.S Ganges.

Prison Rules 1900

Stepping back to the days when a snowflake was just something that fell in winter. The lads of yesteryear were anything but and knew that if you break the law you’ll end up being severely punished. The visiting Magistrates to the prison had the power to order different types of punishment, including corporal punishment for persistent offenders. If you ending up in prison or a House Of Correction and continued breaking the rules a young inmate could face further discipline. A Magistrate, along with the Governor, had the power to order a re offender to receive a birching or tawsing and of course the infamous cat of nine tails!

 

Two such fit young lads were up before the Governor for misbehaviour. The first Harry Cornell (Joey Whyte) with his discipline report, in the governors words, as being appalling.

To cure this he will be ordered to report to the punishment room. Here bent over the flogging pony he will be given the prison strap.
