In the days of junior soldier’s regiments the intention was to train younger lads to become the regular army NCOs and leaders of the future. Discipline was a very important part of their training and a great deal of leeway was used to prepare good records for their future careers. To achieve this off the record punishment was often used and in the long term would benefit the young trainees.
Trooper Carter (Adam Ashton) was in a junior mounted regiment and doing fairly well in his training although his addiction for suddenly going AWOL (absent without leave) had finally got him into deep trouble.
His CO and troop NCO were exasperated! However not wanting to have his record blemished by a charge Carter had opted for corporal punishment.
As a cavalry regiment one instrument always at hand was the long training whip. Usually applied to the buttocks of stubborn horses it was equally successful when used on the bare backsides of insolent young troopers.
Carter bore its burning lash well but it was to be followed up by the boy’s cat, a left over kept and used in the regiment since Victorian times. The six leather thong’s of this formidable instrument were scorching and soon had young Trooper Carter yelping.
The punishment over, the CO leaves the gun room however Carters training NCO is far from satisfied. This hapless cadet had brought shame on his platoon. Even though his bottom is very sore and burning after the whipping the NCO quickly takes Carter across his knee like a naughty boy and spanks his recently whipped bare bottom red raw!
Too big to be spanked not likely, one way or another this wayward trooper will see the error of his ways!
