This video was about 2 soldiers who made history by stealing a cloth. They stole the cloth on purpose so they could get the transportation sentence to Australia.
The 2 soldiers thought that a convict’s life was easy.
They thought that being captured was a good thing.
When the boys found out what the punishment was they begged for freedom. I think because this punishment had been used before and it was probably one of the worst punishments.
Why did the iron cause Privet Studs (one of the soldiers) to die?
Why did they think a convict’s life was easy, did they know what a convict had to go through or did they just presume?
A few people didn’t agree with what had happened.
