School CP - April 1947

Press cutting: Wildman with canesCorpun file 21077


Daily Mirror, London, 26 April 1947

His business is simply whacking!

Eric A. Wildman, 26, ex-Merchant Navy, would probably be Public Enemy No. 1 if schoolboys had any say in the matter. For Eric is a firm believer in corporal punishment -- it's his business.

To more than 100 schools he supplies canes and birches and -- oh! -- everything necessary to produce a schoolboy howler.

He is, however, a strong opponent of thrashing. "I was caned at school, and it did me good," he said yesterday.

"But a child should not be caned on its hands -- the proper place is the old-established one."
