Real life spanking on a bus

Spank a girl on a bus and you may end up being charged with failing to behave in a civil and orderly manner. That was what Douglas Haven was charged with for turning 19 year old Shirley Ellison over his knee according to this 13 August 1954 report from The Times.

Shirley was the only passenger that night when the bus failed to stop to pick up a couple who were running to catch it. She complained to Doug and told him that people should put their foot down and complain about such treatment. He replied that little girls who put their feet down then got their bottoms smacked, to which Shirley answered tartly that, "it would take a man to do that."

Alas for young Shirl, she was speaking to a man who proved his masculinity by promptly bending her over his knee and giving her the spanking that her insolence warranted. Unfortunately he did not spank her hard enough as Shirley then slapped his face and took his number, which is how the matter ended up in court.

"It was all done in fun," according to Doug, and the magistrates seem to have agreed with this assessment as they only fined him £3.00 with £2.10 costs. Hardly a whacking great amount even in 1954!

There's something about a girl being spanked in a very public place.

Anyone remember the student riots outside the American Embassy at Grosvenor Square, I think in 1968? Only I recall a large picture in the News of the World of a girl being held face down by several policemen. Her mini-skirt up around her waist. She was wearing stockings and suspenders and one of the police-men was spanking her!

Does anyone know if her knickers were pulled down?

I will run the photo tonight, but sadly it is a fake. The girl was being dragged off and flashing an upskirt but the policeman's arm has been Photoshopped in

Thankyou for spoiling a memory.

I wasn't aware they had those "tricks" over 40 years ago.

Uncle Nick said...

They didn't - the trickery was done recently. When I get access to a decent library I will find the original report and repost the photo as it was. In the meantime just try and Google this tale and you will see that there are no reports of a spanking at the time - they all come much later.

Hi Nick,

Any story which involves "Miss Ellison" getting her comeuppance is a good story as far as I am concerned.

Kirsten Ellison (Miss).
