These boys had been ‘saved’ by the police and social workers only to be sent to St Leonard’s where their bodies were once again fair game for the adults. But now they were not even getting any money in exchange for their favours, and they did not have the option of running away because, if they did, they would just be sent straight back again. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire. There were also teenage boys who were summoned to have sex with some of the female care workers, and who did not even mind, because who doesn’t like sex?
My older brother Peter, who had been at St Leonard’s before I appeared on the scene, had had sex with Coral loads of times; he recommended it, just as a bit of light relief. Peter was a good-looking kid, and she liked them handsome. I am very happy to say that Coral never gave me the glad eye. She hated me way too much. There was another woman who also worked at the cottage, and she liked young boys even more than Auntie Coral did. She was out of control. I remember her coming into the boys’ dorm early in the morning to see for herself, in her own words, ‘who had the biggest willy’.
Rest in peace, mate. And to all the other boys and girls from St Leonard’s, many of whom are also no longer with us.
