Tangent

Bob Sillet was very accurate with his aim

If you talked in class he sometimes demonstrated the famous 'Tangent' which meant that he told you to bend over and sliced a ruler edge downwards on your bottom - it was extremely painful and few people dared to talk in class after witnessing this

Ayone remember this?

Once he caught B------- singing to himself and made the mortified boy stand on a stool and sing the whole of a nursery rhyme through his tears

I rarely felt sorrier for a lad - it seemed crueller in it's humiliation than the simple pain of a tangent.

Thank goodness by the time I was at CH I never had to witness that!
