The Girl who got spanked – The Liverpool Echo – Tuesday 7th July 1942

The Girl Who Got Spanked

 

There is young woman in London who is regretting her foolishness in handing out white feathers, says the Daily Mirror.

She did it Piccadilly the other evening. She handed feathers to two young men in “civvies.” But they were both flight-lieutenants on leave. They answered the affront with typical R.A.F. dash. “Do we ignore it or spank her?” asked one.

“We spank her,” replied the other.

And in the middle of Piccadilly, before amused crowd, the pretty but vapid young blonde was gently hut firmly spanked across the knee of one of the officers.
