The key word is "seemed". The problem with anger is that it's often held in because people can sometimes feel ashamed of it. Again, it's relative. What makes some people explode will go over another's head.





Don't forget that TV was tame so no violence to set anyone off,also there weren't PC games either that have been blamed for violence in children. There was no ADHD ! Any " performances " resulted in a smacked behind.

They were about " peers " of which went on in most if not all public schools over the years--------and still does. Whether it was then recognised as bullying I don't know but the bullying today is by far different and comes in different forms which includes girls as well as boys.

Whilst the action may not have had a description, the effects of such an action would undoubtedly have been felt.

I recall hearing that they went in as boys and came out as men. I'm inclined to think it may have changed them for life.

It taught them discipline if nothing else. Though it might also have done good in most such as finding employment or furthering their career in the Army itself. It was a good thing really.

I certainly don't know how we've got this " Dante's Inferno " of a world we have today.
