• 2 • Training Once enlisted into the army, every new recruit underwent a period of basic training. At the start of the war this generally lasted for between three and four months and was carried out in depots, before men were posted to regiments.1 After the introduction of the General Service Scheme in July 1942, recruits spent their first six weeks in newly created Primary Training Centres, where they underwent basic infantry training, aptitude and intelligence tests. They were then posted to Corps Training Centres to receive instruction specific to their arm

2 Entrance, training and promotion Between 1769 and 1779 a new crop of gentry sons and their dependants entered the British diplomatic service. James Harris, Joseph Ewart, Charles Whitworth, Morton Eden and Hugh Elliot were the principals. Two of their employees, Robert Liston and David Gray, would successfully make the transition from private to public service. All would remain in the corps for at least a decade; in the cases of Harris, Whitworth, Eden, Elliot and Grey, three or four. The average age of entrants to the service in this period was 28.6 years

8 Licensing, monitoring, and training parents We should distinguish the rights parents have ‘over’ their children from the ‘right to parent’. This is the distinction between parents’ power over their children, or more precisely parents’ legitimate power over their children, on the one hand, and the right to play the role of a parent and therefore the right to raise or rear children, on the other hand. In this chapter I focus on the latter, the ‘right to parent’, before proceeding in subsequent chapters to examine the legitimacy of various aspects of parents

5 Training the ‘natives’ as nurses in Australia: so what went wrong? Odette Best Introduction The story of the Aboriginal women who participated in Australia’s nursing history remains largely untold. In the first six decades of the twentieth century, Aboriginal people were confronted with harsh exclusionary practices that forced them to live in settlements, reserves and missions.1 While many Aboriginal women worked in domestic roles (in white people’s homes and on rural properties), small numbers were trained at public hospitals and some Aboriginal women

9 The Tribunals and the Volunteer Training Corps Born in the early days of the war from the widespread urge to ‘do something’ to protect the homeland from a German invasion, the Volunteer Training Corps, or VTC, had a protracted gestation. The early proliferation of small, independently organized groups, the heterogeneity of opinion regarding their role, the enduring conviction of the War Office that they represented both a diversion of men from fighting units and an expensive frivolity ensured that ‘something’ long remained an undetermined quality. A degree of

106 4 Dog breeding, dog owning and dog training: dividing the classes In twenty-​first century Britain the internet is awash with adverts connected with the breeding and training of greyhounds. There is a Greyhound Breeder Information Centre, a Kennel Club connected with greyhounds, the Greyhound Stud Book and National Coursing Club, the Greyhound Trust, and numerous local organisations to place retired greyhounds. Indeed, the ownership of greyhounds for racing has recently become an immensely controversial issue largely because in many countries greyhounds

Internationalist education between the wars

4 Training for world citizenship: internationalist education between the wars It is undoubtedly true that a remarkable growth of interest in the study of international relations at each level of education has sprung from the circumstances and the ideas of the post-war period. The deep emotional and intellectual impression left by the War and its aftermath has created an unwonted desire to take stock of the conditions of the modern world, and to grapple with the new problems of social conduct and organisation to which the changes of the last one hundred and fifty
