Please Sir – can we have a rag?

Please Sir can we have a rag? We all began to chant the words,increasingly loudly.

About once a term at Marsh Court School in the 1950s, before bedtime, our normally no-touch (apart from the cane) Headmaster, “Wacker”, Maurice Wright, took his jacket off and braced himself for the impact of about 10 boys, sometimes more.

With a roar we all jumped on top of him, and tried to get him down! Before this could happen there was a gruff laugh “That’s enough, boys, stop playing the Ass” – and we all returned to our beds, laughing!
