was a military boarding school for boys ages 6 to 16, run by Catholic nuns, until 1989. Linton Hall was a school where nitpicking rules controlled every aspect of daily existence, from how to fold your underwear to the complicated rules and procedures for using the toilet; and where nuns’ cruel punishments included making little boys who had accidentally wet the bed wear their urine-soaked pajamas around their neck all day. There was little privacy, with nuns watching every time that boys took a shower, and outgoing mail was censored in order to conceal the school’s negative aspects from parents. But cadets also experienced the fun of camping trips, target shooting in the rifle range, and exchanging buttons from school uniforms for kisses from girls — other boys’ sisters who visited the school. A wild roller-coaster ride of bittersweet memories and emotions for alumni, and a surprising look at the past for current students.
