Although I don’t remember the exact date, at the age of 13 I received my only school caning one Friday In Mid-November 1969, so it is now almost exactly half a century since it occurred, yet I remember it vividly to this day, such was the profound effect it had on me. As I have previously stated in memories I have submitted, I believe the memory is so intense because it was the one experience I had of being caned, even if I experienced Corporal Punishment at school in different, and less severe, forms on at least 12 other occasions.
