Thanks to Frank Edwards for this little gem from The West Australian. Brings back (not fond) memories, and perhaps a thought that a claim might be worthwhile, given the return! But I guess we were never ordered to do push ups as a punishment: it was for our physical development.

As I remember it was not for physical development but to determine through alphabet research the name of Bob Aly’s sister.
I didn’t do it for my physical development, rather to entertain 3-4 twisted individuals who gave me and Dave Buchannan an ongoing “punishment” as part of bastardisation – I believe Buck and I set an unbeaten record for EDs in 4th class.
Kind regards to all
John Barwick and I from Kokoda Company easily held the record for EDs in 1969. Jab.
I take you back to a few reunions ago when we visited Point Hut. I suggested we should take a class action for compensation for the BS we copped during the Bastardization year. I don’t know about some of you, but I had better things to do with my life aged 17 then endure that unnecessary bullying and abuse. I received little support. Well, I went ahead regardless and am now $50,000 richer as a result. (This is the top award under the capped rate for compensation.) I may be only an ‘Artist’, but mum didn’t raise a fool or a passive victim. Cheers Jab
