Western Morning News: "Cuts Have Left The Navy 'Too Small', Warns Report"

Thought it was about these!!!!! Punishment No.20 under the Naval Discipline Act of Parliament applied only to these two Boys' Establishments and consisted of not more than twelve and not less than six cuts of the cane for serious offences-"serious" in that context being, for instance, stealing half-a-crown from your neighbour in Drake dormitory. It could be awarded only by the Captain after hearing both evidence and defence (or otherwise) from the boy's Divisional Officer and, if so awarded, was executed only by the Master-At-Arms
