Applica nt and THE STATES OF JERSEY

WITNESS STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF APPUCATION TO HISTORIC ABUSE COMPENSATION SCHEME

120

I

formerly

, of

will say as follows:-

1.

I was born on

1962. I am 50 years old.

2.

I am single. I am unemployed and in receipt of state support.

3.

I make this statement in support of my app lication to the historic abuse claims compensation scheme operated by the States of Jersey.

4.

I was born in Jersey Hospital. My mother was called . I have

sisters,

than me.

are living in Jersey. I also

than me .

My mother was

and my father was is the oldest, and

6

is

when we were young.

When I was very young, about 6 months old I believe, I was placed

in care beca use of the Local Authority's concern about my mot her's inability to look after me and

5.

6

.

My mother was extremely violent. On an occasion my sister and I had to jump out of the window t o escape from her. She tried to smash a broken bottle into my face. The States of

72

6

Jersey were aware of this which is why

247, 248

left

and I were put into care. However they

, with our mother. When I was about 14 I reported this

to a child care worker, Barbara Chappel l, who arranged for them to be placed in foster care in St Clements.

6.

According to my records in October 1962 I was placed in La Creche Children's Home. When I was two years old my father left my mother. At some point I was placed into Haut de Ia Garenne. I was in and out of Haut de Ia Garenne. One time

6

and I were placed with a

couple in Five Oaks when Haut de Ia Garenne was full . They were fine with us but as soon as there was space at Haut de Ia Garenne we were sent there.

7.

When I first went to the Haut de Ia Garenne there was a couple called

and

who were not violent. They never laid a finger on anyone.

8.

I was then moved to a

School) in

in around

1968, during term time. Holidays were spent back at Haut de Ia Garenne. I stayed at the for 5 years until I was 13.

6

joined me there in about 1970. I have no idea why we

were sent here. I hated it there and kept running away. While I was there I used to be drugged by

. I do not think the other children were drugged but I was more hyper than the

other children. One time I was so drugged up that I would have fallen off my chair but caught me. One time

6

thought I was dying. She tried to get me to te ll

was so upset by the way I was drugged that she that I didn't want it any more.

said I was a very naughty girl and that the medication was God's way of punishing me.

9.

If I ever argued with

she would kick me in the back of the knee to make me fall

down, then hold my nose and force the medication, a clear liquid, into my mouth. Another way they gave it to me was in my morning milk. I think that these drugs stopped me from learning

2 73

anything during my childhood. This is why I cannot read or write very well. I have never had the skills to find any work in adult life because of this.

10. One Friday

6

hit me over the head with a metal bowl while I was queuing for dinner.

hit

that day.

120, 6

. We ended up in

11. I was thrown out of the

ran away with another girl called where we stayed with

and sent to an approved school in

mum.

for a while when I was

nearly 14. I was not convicted of anything wrong. I was told it was because they said I was 'uncontrollable'. Other kids at the school had been sent there by the courts but I was under no court order.

12. For some reason social services moved me back to Jersey, back to Haut de Ia Garenne, where I remained until! was 15 or 16 years old. 13. During my time at Haut de Ia Garenne I was subjected to physical, emotional and sexual abuse by the staff who ran the home. The regime was one of constant verbal and mental abuse. It was a regular occurrence for members of staff to put me down and call me 'stupid' and other demeaning names.

14. I refer to the video statement I gave to the States of Jersey Police on 16th February 2008, which

sets out in some detail what happened to me at Haut de Ia Garenne. This has already been submitted with my application on 6th July 2012. I would like to add to this detail further information that I did not necessarily cover well in my police interview.

15. There was a member of staff called

. He gave me the creeps. I would think of him

as a ' dirty old man'. On a couple of occasions he would be grab hold of my breast, or touch me

children, and his family lived at Haut de Ia Garenne. He would often 'touch me up', whenever he had the opportunity.

17. When I was 13 years old I was put on the contraceptive pill. Shortly after when I think I was 13 or 14 years old (although I am really not too sure), in winter time, I was going to see the manager Jim Thompson, walking along the corridor to his office. I bumped into

who

took me into an empty classroom. He said something like 'you hang around with a lot of boys', to which I said 'yes' as it was a mixed school. He then said words to the effect of 'you're going to enjoy this'. He then put his hand over my mouth, and said 'not a word to anyone'. He smelt of alcohol. He pushed me to the floor and then got on top of me with one hand over my chests. He said he would really hurt me if I screamed. He then raped me (full penetration), and it was so painful. He got up off me, and told me to wash and then left, telling me not to tell anyone.

I believe he caused me significant injury to the point where I believe the rape and the

physica l injury he caused me has prevented me from having any children.

20. One of the punishments that the house staff liked to use on us was the use of cold baths. I particularly remember Morag Kidd and the hair. I had

aking me there. They used to drag me by

so they couldn't do this but they dragged me by the ears

instead. The staff often smelt of alcohol. They would throw me into a freezing cold baths in the winter. It was terrifying.

They would laugh as they were doing this, as though they were just

having fun.

21. I remember regularly being locked up in 'the detention room'. This was a secure cell. It was usually for running away (which I did often), nothing more naughty than that. On at least one occasion I was locked up for 6 weeks. I was only let out to go to the toilet.

22. When I was about 13 I remember being held down by staff and M orag Kidd punching me in the face. I had a black eye and a nose bleed from this. About this time I ran away with , she jumped down into the lane in the wrong place and broke her leg. After we were caught and then taken back to Haut de Ia Garenne they kept

there and did not send her

to hospital until the next day.

23. Being doped up on medication on a daily basis was all that I knew. There was a Dr Foggerty who would see me and prescribe the medication. I do not know why I had to take the tablets. I was in a constant state of drowsiness and could not concentrate. As well as being forced to take medication I was admitted on several occasions to a hospital

I think the

longest time I spent on the ward was 7 weeks. I do not recall why I was there for so long nor what my diagnosis was.

24. Whilst I was at Haut de fa Garenne two children jumped to their deaths from Gorey Castle. They were a lot older than me. I think there was a write up about this in the News of the World. This

76

news scared us that older boys had killed themselves because of being in the Haut de Ia Garenne. Another boy

told me he wouldn't see me anymore and he hanged

himself in his dad's shed. He was my first boyfriend, I was about 12 at the time. I thought he did it because of my being sent to the

school but I found out from his sister when l was in

my twenties that it was because of how he was treated at the Haut de Ia Garenne.

25. Other children killed themselves.

was one of them. Another boy jumped from a

multi-storey car park while he was out for the day on a Saturday.

26. I was often locked up at Haut de Ia Garenne as I ran away so much. When I was 15 and still in the care of children's services I was discharged from Haut de Ia Garenne and ended up sleeping rough on the streets in St Helier. about

in

1980 under my maiden name.

27. There was a lot of violence and sexual exploitation at this time. I still find it too painful to talk about most of this. I was sleeping in a car park when a man called

offered to put me and

my friend 136 up. He then raped me. There was a big row and the police came. They arrested

136 and me but not the man who had raped me.

28. In 1978, when I was 16 I left Haut de Ia Garenne. I spent the next three years in and out of various detention facilities including approved schools and borstals.

I was diagnosed with

behaviour management problems.

29. In 1981, when I was 19 I was sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment at Holloway Prison for the offence of theft and criminal damage.

c

30. Since the age of around 9 I have drunk alcohol. However I began to get heavily into drinking when 1 was about 15.

I have been diagnosed with alcohol dependency syndrome. Feeling

anxious usually triggers my drinking.

My drinking has resulted in me receiving criminal

sentences for drunk and disorderly behavior in Jersey. My drinking has been so out of control at some points in my life that it has led to seizures which were related to alcohol consumption. When I am drunk I also self harm by cutting myself as well as stubbing cigarettes out on my arms. 1 drink to block out memories of Haut de Ia Garenne. My memories of my childhood cause me deep anxiety and I often fall into "crisis" mode. I then drink until I am unconscious. I have overdosed on a number of occasions due to excessive alcohol consumption.

I have tried

detox programmes in the past but I often have relapses. I believe that my excessive drinking is linked to my childhood and the abuse I suffered at Haut de Ia Garenne.

31. My drinking has led to me being homeless and living on the streets on and off for many years. believe it is also significant factor in my having a criminal record.

32. As a result of my childhood memories, I suffer from depression, panic attacks, nightmares and flashbacks of Haut de Ia Garenne.

Since 1990 I have overdosed using drugs on at least 5

occasions. The last overdose I took was in 2010.

33 . My health has been severely affected as a result of my drinking and drug taking. I suffer from epilepsy and until very recently I had daily seizures.

34. The media coverage of Haut de Ia Garenne and making the statement to the police in February

2008 made me extremely distressed. After I did the police statement (by video), I took an overdose of my epileptic medication and was admitted to hospital.

35. Since leaving Haut de Ia Garenne I would describe my life as chaotic. I was never given a proper

7 78

education because I was too drugged to ever be able to concentrate fully. This has hindered any chances I have had had of getting qualifications or a job. I never had the opportunity to go onto further education and better myself.

36. Because of the abuse I suffered at Haut de Ia Garenne, I admit that people have taken advantage of my vulnerable nature. I have massive trust issues. I cannot hold down serious relationships. I feel stressed, nervous and anxious all the time. I have never been able to have children. I am supported by various statutory agencies and a voluntary organization called 'Missing Link' which is a mental health charity specialising in working with women who have a history of sleeping rough.

37. I feel that because I was placed in the care of the States of Jersey at a very young age I had no chance of ever leading a "normal" life. I should have been protected and cared for during my childhood, but instead was subjected to a horrifying regime of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. My life has been ruined. I make this statement in the hope that the States of Jersey will recognize that they failed to protect me and that as a result of their failings, I should be entitled to receive compensation from them.

79

I confirm the contents of this statement are true. Slgne

In the Isla nd she ha s been m o~ed on various occasions from one residential e s tablishme nt to anot~~r .

Each place in ~hich she lives now views itself as a tempora ry holding point a nd looks fo r ward to the ti ~e when s he will eventually oove on.

The most worryinf feature of the offence s of wn1cn is now accus ed is her ina bili t y to vi e ~ th e ~ in any s e r i oua way. She sees herself as a "loony", and/her own ey es this exp l a ins anyth ing she doe s and exonerates her from personal bl ame. In terms of mora l r e~ ponsibility she is very much like the seven to eight ye a r old c hild who is una ble to put herself in the shoes of the victims of her behaviour . 120

Apart fran ' s infl uence , her behaviour can be controlled within acceptable limits , although she s~eks and needs an e normous amount of individual attention . Although I have described 120 as sex ually amoral , it is true to say that she is not " a f emme fatale" . She does not really seek to use sex to further her own ends , but rathe r she has be~n used or abused by othPrs .

Dear Mr . Thomf son,



I received your le tter t his a . m. and am replyin0 straight away as I suppose it's very imp ort ant 120 to I ' m afraid there ' s ve r y little I know about he r fath e r ; I don ' t thinK I ever met him as he ' a left the Islan d before my arrival ( I think ,. He was , If I do remember anything I ' ll let you know I believe . 120 6 but when I go t to Jersey and were both in the Creche ru1d Mrs . was living with in . I should think is t he one to ask as she has s uch a wond erful memory and was a travelling encyclopedia auout all the families ~ Or perf.aps Mr b . if she ' s still 120 around . I re member ve ry well , of course . Or 120 a s I knew her~ A most attrbctive and lively c hild but wi th every potential for adolescent difficul ties . I don ' t er.vy you your job , but it is very we ll worth wr.ile arJd must keep you VLry busy which is the most imp , r tant t hing . Yes I had heard you were at Haut u e la Garenne . Mrs . wrote a few weeks ago and told me ; unfortunately I only s eem t o hear from her o~ce a year no w t hat she ' s do i ng pioneer work at the Ge neral Hospit al ! I did tell her I ' d like to visit Jersey in aut umn but am waitinb for an invitation ! P erhaps she ' s t oo busy tnese days . Ve s , I ' m ei . .Joying my retirement not\ that I've adjusted to it . I SJJen 4 my time painting and wri ting . Have won . Still wai ting to be yublished tho ugh . I don ' t really try hard enough . I really prefer painting . Have just finished six fairly large oil pain t ings since term began in September and am very pleased wi th them as I have got my own style. Ho wever it ' s a frustrating job for on the whole pe ople prefer c h ocolate box paintings and don ' t like anything di fferent . At the moment 1 ' m beginning to think what an aimle ss life I ' m leading, bu t I thi nk that ' s just sprir.g in the air !

I go away as much as possible . Am off for a mini weekend t o london on Saturday and the following weekend am~ off wi t }. t~o writer friends to an Adult College in for a Writing cum Italian weekend. I ' ve been learning Italian during the past 18 months and went to Italy for Christmas . It was most interesting b~t very cold , and I no lo~r envy Gracie Fieldst I c am e back with 6) small paintings though , and they are a lovely souvenir of my travels . For Easter I ' m off to France for 10 days - three oays in ~aris and a week wi t h my Fre11ch friend in central l r hAI; she's removing i n June so the visit wi ll be rather sad as I shan't be visiting that village again I suppose . I 'v e taken uv Yog b too which I find very interesting and on Dr.' s orders I ' ve been losing weight and am now do wn to 10 st . I think I ' m thi n enough now and am rathe r I !eel worried as I seem to continue g e tting t hinner . fine though and much younger t This lunchtime I dashe ~ out and bought a mar s bar t I seem to spend al J my t ~ altering my skirts and dres s es t It ' s laughable really as so many of my friends can • t lose any weight at all . I don ' t belong to Weight Watchers I just use my own determination - no biscuits and caKes or chocolates. I think we all tend to eat too much . We ' ve h ad a pretty hard winter t his year - jolly c old - but t n ese last few days have been lovely with the feel of spring in the air . The croc uses are out on the Stray and are so colourful and p retty .

I ' m very glad you ' re at Haut de la Garenne- at last they ' ve got a decent warden t good work !

All three girls th en left this man ' s house, and ptteeeded into town , attracting much attention as 136 had to be physically supported by the other two, due to he r state of intoxica tion. It was whilst they we re in town, and because of the shouting and an t ics of

3. The Sub-Committee, with reference to its Minutes No. 4 of 1 5 th June and No. 1 of 21st June, 1977, ^''^as informed by the Children's Officer that all the children in care had been removed from the Family Group Home at and his sons, aged were, however, still residing there as the Housing Department had been unable to assist in finding accommodation for him. The Housing Department had nevertheless confirmed that possessed the housing qualifications necessary for the renting of accommodation. The Children's Officer also reported that the house at Clos de Roncier was being cleaned and cleared. The Children's Officer also reported that son would be spending the summer holidays with relatives in the United Kingdom.

ion for s.

k. The Sub-Committee, with reference to its Minutes No. 5 of 1 5 th June and No. 2 of 21st June, 1977> was informed by the Senior Administrative Assistant that the Director of Education wished to speak to himself and had asked that further consideration of this matter be deferred until he had had the opportunity of doing so. The Sub-Committee agreed.

5. The Sub-Committee recalled that, as recorded in its Minute No. 6 of 15th June, 1977, it had considered that although the J.A.Y.F. Hostels were independent and thus had a right to be selective as regards the children which they were prepared to accept as boarders, nevertheles it was a matter of concern in that there was no alternative place in which to house difficult adolescents above school age and it had drawn attention to the fact that the Association was also in receipt of a substantial grant from public funds from the Education Committee's Budget. The Chairman report that she had discussed the matter with the Chairman of the Education Committee, who was also President of the J.A.Y.F. The problem of finding suitable accommodation for difficult adolescents had been discussed at a recent Association meeting, at which the J.A.Y.F. had stressed that its object was to provide accommodation for children made homeless through no fault of their o^^m and not to provide corrective training. Each individual hostal had, however, been asked to invite the Chairman of the Sub-Committee to visit it to view the facilities.

3)

6. The Sub-Committee, with partial reference to its Minute No. 6 of 15th June, 1977, and its preceding Minute of this Meeting, was informed by the Children's Officer that was still a patient 6 at the General Hospital but the Hospital Authorities had requested her removal. The Children's Officer stated that, in view of the fact that 6 was 1 7 years of ago, the only place she could be transferred to was Haut de la Gareime, where she was likely to have an adverse effect on the other younger children. The Sub-Committee, having been advised by the Children's Officer that there were others for whom accommodation, other than Haut de la Garenne, could not be found, decided that a report containing details of all such children should be prepared and circulated to the Members in readiness for discussion at the next Meeting, in the context of establishing a range of boarding facilities including "professional fostering".

95

77 e la e -

120 lina The Sub-Conunittee was informed was receiving lessons once a week from an adult literacy tutor in addition to tuition by each morning. 9.

The Sub-Committee decided that the Children's Officer should prepare a report on background for 120 consideration at its next Meeting,

e la e -

10. The Chairman informed the Sub-Committee that the Education Committee had asked that the Sub-Committee should consider whether Haut de la Garenne should grow its o\\m vegetables and also that food should be bought in bulk and stored in deep freezers, in an attempt to reduce expenditure. The Sub-Committee recalled its Minute No, 8 of 11th May, 1977 in which the Superintendent had been requested to consider the possibility of the children undertaking work in the gardens. The Superintendent stated that he had given preliminary consideration to the matter and it was his opinion that, in order to make the proposal costeffective, it would be necessary to employ skilled labour to supervise the task. On the question of bulk-buying food, the Superintendent explained that this was in fact normal procedure and it was common practice to seek out the lowest prices from the various suppliers. The Superintendent agreed to provide examples of the various costings.

The Sub-Committee agreed that further consideration shoulc. be given to the method by which this could be achieved at a subsequent meeting.

Dear Advocate Lacey, 124

Re:

124 We act have been instructed by to claim compensation from the States of Jersey in respect of the physical, emotional and sexual abuse that he suffered whilst in its care between circa 1961 and 1967.

For convenience we shall refer to

124

as the Claimant.

Introduction 1.1

The States of Jersey (subsequently referred to for convenience as the "Defendanr) was at all relevant times responsible for the management, control and administration of a children's home known as the Jersey Home for Boys and subsequently Haut De La Garenne.

1.2

The Defendant has not disclosed socia l services records in respect of the Claimant and consequently reserves the right to amend these particulars once disclosure has been made.

Statutory backdrop 2.1

In the course of providing social services functions the Defendant received into care children. The duties of the Defendant in respect of a child in its care are set out in the Children and Young Persons Act 1933 (as enacted by order in council); and Public Instruction Committee Act 1953.

2.2

The amount of the fund will be ascertained from Professor Maden. The time limit that the fund would be available to the Claimant will be discussed with the Defendant.

(b)

A global sum for his past and future loss of earning capacity

Limitation We do not consider prescription (limitation) to be an issue in this case because of the aforementioned facts, and given the circumstances but, nevertheless we invite you to agree to a "limitation holiday" without prejudice to any limitation defence that you might have. This would avoid the expense of having to issue proceedings. If you do not agree and proceedings have to be issued we reserve the right to refer to this letter on the issue of costs. During the "limitation holiday" further enquires can be made by both parties, medical evidence obtained and disclosure can be made. The ulimitation holiday" is terminable by either party giving the other in writing 28 days notice. Disclosure This is a case where disclosure must be made. We need you to disclose please the following: (1) (2)

Al l records relating to our client in your possession and/or control; Al l records relating to Haut De La Garenne and for the avoidance of doubt and in particular: (i)

punishment book;

(ii)

registers of attendance or intake or roll;

16

(iii)

Insurance It may be that the States is insured in respect of the Claimant's claim and therefore the insurer should be notified without delay, otherwise the availability of cover may be affected as well as the conduct of any civil action. Public Enquiry We understand that there is to be a public enquiry concerning the abuse of ch ildren at Haut de Ia Garenne. We must ask on the Claimant's behalf that: •

His opinion is sought and considered at to the ambit and purpose of the enquiry;



That he is given the opportunity lo give evidence to t hat enquiry; and



That he can be legally represented at that enquiry.

The way forward The Claimant has no desire to become embroiled in litigation and has been very distressed by the media publicity generated by the case. He has been further upset by suggestions in the media that claims have been made suggesting that the allegations of abuse have been

17

exaggerated, and of course you do not need to us to tell you that this could have the effect of aggravating our client's psychological damage, and in turn any award of damages. With that in mind we trust that the States will agree to resolve our client's claim outside the adversarial process. We look forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully

I contacted the police last week having read in the Jersey Evening Post on Thursday 3rd November 2005, the article relating to Thomas Hamon and his appearance in the Magistrates Court, relating to indecency with children. I don't normally read the section on the Magistrates Court and on this particular occasion I was reading something on the same page and saw the name Hamon, I said to my wife that 'cunt'. I can't say why, but the name Hamon really hit me, not Thomas. I told my wife before we got married that that I had been abused when living in the home; however I did not tell her everything that happened to me. As a child I lived in the children's home called Haute de La Garenne and the name Hamon brought back memories of the time I had spent in the home. To be sure that I was relating to the same person I contacted the Police Station and spoke to a police officer, Detective Constable Parker in the Child Protection Team. I asked the officer if these incidents happened in the Haute de Ia Garenne children's home and if Hamon had a wife who was working there at the time. . Detective Constable Parker was unable to disclose this information to me and asked me to contact Detective Constable Brian Carter.

19

1453

STATES OF .JERSEY POLICE Having contacted Detective Constable Carter, arrangements were made for him to attend my home address on Wednesday g'h November 2005, where he took notes in relation to my complaint. I know it is a long time age that I was In the home, the early nineteen sixties. I believe that I was in the home between the ages of eight and eleven and a second period when I was about thirteen years of age. When the abuse was occurring I was in the JUniors and slept in the junior dormitory. If I recall correctly there were ten beds in my dormitory. The junior, juniors were in an adjoining room and you could get to this room from mine through double doors. To get to my room, I would have to walk up the stairs from the direction of the dining hall and past a room used by a female member of staff who I believe was . I can't remember if this room had an upstairs and downstairs, but my bed was next to this room.

195 I remember that was in my dormitory, I haven't seen him for years, probably five years or so it is 152, 348, 41 & 342 and even longer since I have spoken to him. There was also 493 was the bully in the block and later took his own life. 493 whose parents were The first incident that I can recall is when I woke up coming [ejaculating] he was 'wanking' me in fact, I thought it was a great dream and I didn't know what was going on. It was like having a wet dream until you woke up and he was there. He would also suck me off, I know it sounds sick but that is the one I really enjoyed the most. On numerous occasions I would be in my bed and he would be lying on top of me, in factl1is weight on my body had woken me. I would always have my pyjamas on and more often than not there would be either a sheet or blanket between us. He would be rubbing himself up and down on me as though he was having sex with a woman. I remember it distinctively, his weight, he was so heavy and he was always dressed. I never enjoyed that, it felt like rape to me and of course the usual hand over the mouth so I wouldn't scream when I woke up. He became more confident and when he realised that I was waking up, he became more adventurous. He would get onto the bed and we would end up masturbating each other. He then started performing oral sex on me and after three or Four occasions he asked me to do it to him, but I found his penis too big, so I wanked [masturbated] him instead. lived in the room next to my bed. She would call me into the room saying that she As I have explained needed a job done. When I went into the room she would be standing at the sink facing the mirror washing her exposed breasts. I could see her reflection in the mirror and as a boy I would try to get a closer look. She would then act surprised, as though she has been caught out, however she never appeared shocked to me. I remember that she was always flirting. On other occasions she would make out that I had not seen her, Mr. Hamon would then come into the room. I remember being aroused and he would rub my penis over my clothing. He never touched me inside of my clothing when in this room. I really enjoyed this and I came [ejaculated] several times in my clothing. I cannot say exactly how many times this happened, somewhere between five and ten times. In hindsight she knew exactly what she was doing, she always had clothes on covering her lower body and she could see that he was fondling me. She knew what he was doing, she set me up. 1remember that as children we played on the field at the back of the home. I would always want to stay behind because I didn't really want to go back inside. He would always conduct examinations on me, almost like playing doctors and nurses. This never happened inside, always outside in the back fields during the summer. He would strip me and then masturbate me and he would ask me to do it to him. I would ejaculate and so would he. He would also give me oral sex and I would do it to him. I didn't like having to give him oral sex; I found his penis too big to put into my mouth. When I think back he must have had a big cock and this happened on two or three occasions.

20

1454

STATES OJ:l' JERSEY POLICE Th1s sounds daft but he seemed to gel more pleasure out of giving it to you than you giving it to him. This happened to me on loads of occasions and eventually stopped when I refused his advances when he wanted to sodomise me. Sometimes it was nearly every night, I can't tell what time of night this 11appened and I neve1 performed oral sex on h1m in the dormitory He also tried to sodomise me in the field. He tried to put his penis up my arse. It was so painful I refused and I remember screaming. His penis as I have said seemed huge to me I remember that he couldn't do it to me because I fought against him . Following this, all the abuse stopped. She was a real sod to me after this. In hindsight it must have taken them months to plan this. Soon after they left the Children's Home, no one can remember why he left and looking back they both left at the same time. I'm sure the system knew something about them and they were only at the home for a couple of years. He never forced me to do these things, he just coaxed me: he was never bad to me. I have tried to put everything that has happened to me to the back of my mind. As a teenager I had loads of girlfriends, who would go to bed with me, but I never wanted to have sex with them, I couldn't have sex with them. I was a virgin until I met my current wife, she seduced me in to having sex and she taught me everything that I now know. He really caused me to suffer emotional turmoil and even after I was married I had oral sex with a male friend. I won't name this person. The reason for having oral sex with this male friend is that after having sex with my wife and her wanting kids, I needed to find out where my sexuality lay. I needed to make sure that I was the right person for this before committing myself. Because of the abuse that I have suffered I have never let my wife give me oral sex. Too many things have happened in my life and I blame the Children's Home for this. I have always kept this a secret, I never told any of the lads what happened to me, it was my own private little secret. I have always been very secretive as a boy and I have always been a bit of a loner and that is how I have survived I have told my Doctor, Doctor Ellis of 51 David Place who asked me why I never prosecuted and I told him that I thought these people were now dead. This all happened a long t1me ago. I cannot categorically say that it was Thomas Hamon who abused me however the name in the paper instantly rang a bell with me. As I have said, the man who abused me, is, I believe Thomas Hamon and that he was the female who lived in the flat adjoining my dormitory. If I was to see a picture of Hamon I would be able to confirm if I have got the correct person. I remember that both the male and female were and that she had hanging around the boys, I never saw her with the girls. He may have had there was something about his hair colour that rings a bell.

hair and eyes. She was always hair and the reason I say this is that

I am prepared to go to court with my complaint.

I am the above named person and 1 reside at the address known to the police. I am currently receiving following an about eight years ago.

and

I contacted the police last week having read in the Jersey Evening Post on Thursday 3rd November 2005, the article relating to Thomas Hamon and his appearance in the Magistrates Court, relating to indecency with children. I don't normally read the section on the Magistrates Court and on this particular occasion I was reading something on the same page and saw the name Hamon, I said to my wife that 'cunt'. I can't say why, but the name Hamon really hit me, not Thomas. I told my wife before we got married that that I had been abused when living in the home; however I did not tell her everything that happened to me. As a child 1 lived in the children's home called Haute de La Garenne and the name Hamon brought back memories of the time I had spent in the home. To be sure that I was relating to the same person 1 contacted the Police Station and spoke to a police officer, Detective Constable Parker in the Child Protection Team. I asked the officer if these incidents happened in the Haute de la Garenne children's home and if Hamon had a wife who was working there at the time. . Detective Constable Parker was unable to disclose this information to me and asked me to contact Detective Constable Brian Carter.

1

1453

STATES OF JERSEY POLICE Having contacted Detective Constable Carter, arrangements were made for him to attend my home address on Wednesday 9th November 2005, where he took notes in relation to my complaint. I know it is a long time age that I was in the home, the early nineteen sixties. I believe that I was in the home between the ages of eight and eleven and a second period when I was about thirteen years of age. When the abuse was occurring I was in the juniors and slept in the junior dormitory. If I recall correctly there were ten beds in my dormitory. The junior, juniors were in an adjoining room and you could get to this room from mine through double doors. To get to my room, I would have to walk up the stairs from the direction of the dining hall and past a room used by a female member of staff who I believe was I can't remember if this room had an upstairs and downstairs, but my bed was next to this room.

195 I remember that was in my dormitory, I haven't seen him for years, probably five years or so it is 152, 348, 41 & 342 even longer since I have spoken to him. There was also 493 whose parents were . 493 was the bully in the block and later took his own life. The first incident that I can recall is when I woke up coming [ejaculating] he was 'wanking' me in fact, I thought it was a great dream and I didn't know what was going on. It was like having a wet dream until you woke up and he was there.

He would also suck me off, I know it sounds sick but that is the one I really enjoyed the most. On numerous occasions 1 would be in my bed and he would be lying on top of me, in fact his weight on my body had woken me. 1 would always have my pyjamas on and more often than not there would be either a sheet or blanket between us. He would be rubbing himself up and down on me as though he was having sex with a woman. I remember it distinctively, his weight, he was so heavy and he was always dressed. I never enjoyed that, it felt like rape to me and of course the usual hand over the mouth so I wouldn't scream when I woke up.

He became more confident and when he realised that I was waking up, he became more adventurous. He would get onto the bed and we would end up masturbating each other. He then started performing oral sex on me and after three or four occasions he asked me to do it to him, but I found his penis too big, so I wanked [masturbated] him instead. As I have explained lived in the room next to my bed. She would call me into the room saying that she needed a job done. When I went into the room she would be standing at the sink facing the mirror washing her exposed breasts. I could see her reflection in the mirror and as a boy I would try to get a closer look. She would then act surprised, as though she has been caught out, however she never appeared shocked to me. I remember that she was always flirting. On other occasions she would make out that I had not seen her, Mr. Hamon would then come into the room. I remember being aroused and he would rub my penis over my clothing. He never touched me inside of my clothing when in this room. I really enjoyed this and I came [ejaculated] several times in my clothing. I cannot say exactly how many times this happened, somewhere between five and ten times. In hindsight she knew exactly what she was doing, she always had clothes on covering her lower body and she could see that he was fondling me. She knew what he was doing, she set me up. I remember that as children we played on the field at the back of the home. I would always want to stay behind because I didn't really want to go back inside. He would always conduct examinations on me, almost like playing doctors and nurses. This never happened inside, always outside in the back fields during the summer. He would strip me and then masturbate me and he would ask me to do it to him. I would ejaculate and so would he. He would also give me oral sex and I would do it to him. I didn't like having to give him oral sex; I found his penis too big to put into my mouth. When I think back he must have had a big cock and this happened on two or three occasions.

2

1454

STATES OF JERSEY POLICE This sounds daft but he seemed to get more pleasure out of giving it to you than you giving it to him. This happened to me on loads of occasions and eventually stopped when I refused his advances when he wanted to sodomise me. Sometimes it was nearly every night, I can't tell what time of night this happened and I never performed oral sex on him in the dormitory He also tried to sodomise me in the field. He tried to put his penis up my arse. It was so painful I refused and I remember screaming. His penis as I have said seemed huge to me. I remember that he couldn't do it to me because I fought against him. Following this, all the abuse stopped. She was a real sod to me after this. In hindsight it must have taken them months to plan this. Soon after they left the Children's Home, no one can remember why he left and looking back they both left at the same time. I'm sure the system knew something about them and they were only at the home for a couple of years. He never forced me to do these things, he just coaxed me; he was never bad to me. I have tried to put everything that has happened to me to the back of my mind. As a teenager I had loads of girlfriends, who would go to bed with me, but I never wanted to have sex with them, I couldn't have sex with them. I was a virgin until I met my current wife, she seduced me in to having sex and she taught me everything that I now know.

He really caused me to suffer emotional turmoil and even after I was married I had oral sex with a male friend. I won't name this person. The reason for having oral sex with this male friend is that after having sex with my wife and her wanting kids, I needed to find out where my sexuality lay. I needed to make sure that I was the right person for this before committing myself. Because of the abuse that I have suffered I have never let my wife give me oral sex. Too many things have happened in my life and I blame the Children's Home for this. I have always kept this a secret, I never told any of the lads what happened to me, it was my own private little secret. I have always been very secretive as a boy and I have always been a bit of a loner and that is how I have survived. I have told my Doctor, Doctor Ellis of 51 David Place who asked me why I never prosecuted and I told him that I thought these people were now dead. This all happened a long time ago. I cannot categorically say that it was Thomas Hamon who abused me however the name in the paper instantly rang a bell with me. As I have said, the man who abused me, is, I believe Thomas Hamon and that he was the female who lived in the flat adjoining my dormitory. If I was to see a picture of Hamon I would be able to confirm if l have got the correct person. 1 remember that both the male and female were and that she had hanging around the boys, I never saw her with the girls. He may have had there was something about his hair colour that rings a bell.

hair and eyes. She was always hair and the reason I say this is that

I am prepared to go to court with my complaint.

The Police have not forced me to say anything that I do not want to say or did not know before the Police spoke with me. 2 I was born on the 1

or I believe that they

were at that stage. There were so many staff going in and out. But the main people I remember were the TILBROOK's, the

225 & 491 nd the WILLIAM's and they were couples. I never knew their

first names because we were always told to call them Mr or Mrs and never be personal. The WILLIAM's were from Wales. There were the HAMON's who were just boyfriend and girlfriend

and his first name was Thomas. There were loads of individual staff and I find it difficult to remember them and I think it is probably because they were the nicer people. There were some nice staff there and I believe some of the staff were just as scared as the kids actually. 4 The WILLIAM's were in charge of the intermediates and the

225 & 491 ere in charge of the

seniors. But in the juniors we didn't really have one. When I first went to Haut de la Garenne, I was in the junior and I have been in all three groups through the years. 5

was there. But I cannot remember other staff that were actually there when I was there. None of these were there when I first started apart from the TILBROOK's. 6 The reason that I went into the home was because my mother and she had

children. I was the oldest and did not have a father. I was hyperactive and I

suppose naughty would be the right word. When I was a one and a half years old my father left. My mother did not like me, as she blamed me for my father going, don't ask me why. When my mother had another child, her boyfriend, who was an alcoholic, used to hit her about and all that. I used to

fight him and she used to try and stop it. I didn't get on with them in my household and to get attention I used to steal things and be dealt with by the police. They were very minor things and I did not go to court over it. Eventually they said that I was not happy at home and so they sent me to the children's home at Haut de le Garenne. 7 My sister L

s also sent to the home but she does not want to get

involved at all. I have other siblings but they did not go to Haut de la Garenne. 8 My first few months I quite enjoyed in a funny sort of way. 9 The routine never really changed whilst I was there. You got up around half six in the morning and you had your breakfast about seven. We got ready for school and you got inspected by your bed to make sure that everything was all right. We were all given specific rooms to clean like the dining room, the kitchen or something like that and I had to do the cleaning of the dormitory. There were only two junior schools and two senior schools that you would go and the bus would come. You got on your bus and depending on what school you went to the bus took you to school with a pack lunch. We stayed at school all day and the bus would pick you up, back to the home. When you got back to the home you take your uniform off, get changed, polish your shoes and boots and sit down and have your tea. Different people would be told who to clean up the kitchen or do the washing up in the kitchen or who was to clean all the dishes. 10 Sometimes they would use this as a punishment because who would want to clean the dishes for seventy to a hundred people. There was a dishwasher that used really hot water and I was scalded myself more than once because of it and I still have

aged about 10 when this happened. You had to do the cleaning of the dishes in the evening and the

morning and that was used as a punishment. You try cleaning three courses of dishes for seventy people.

11 People like me and

lways used o get a lot of punishments because we

used to buck the system and we would not be dominated by them. A lot of people were frightened by the staff, I mean really frightened by the staff. But there was like a small group of us, three or four of us, that weren't frightened of the staff and we would not be told to do things if we thought that they were unreasonable and we would say 'no I am not doing it'. It would be the same five or six that used to get these punishments. 12 I have been asked by the police to name boys or girls who used to be at the home at the same

time as I was. There was my best mat

juniors and he was in the seniors I would not see him very often apart from mealtimes that would be the only time you would see them often. 13 I know four or five people that I have spoken to in the last four or five years and some of they don't want to get involved in this case at all and who have all been sexually abused. Although some people have jumped on the band wagon on this and they don't know the difference between capital punishment and ordinary punishment. In my time to me, personally it was more mental and physical abuse. 14 The worst thing for me, whilst I was at Haut de la Garenne was the mental abuse because I had strong willpower and they knew that they couldn't get much from me from physical abuse. But the worse physical abuse that I ever had was the buckle of a belt. 15 The reason that I received the punishment of being beaten with a belt buckle was because I had run away. The reason that I had run away was because of the mental abuse that I was getting at the time, I found it a strain and I found it too much to handle.

16 An example of the mental abuse was when I was roughly ten years of age. I went for my tea, I was never a man who liked sweets. I would have my soup and my main meal. I would sit on TILBROOK's table by the way. This is an example of how he was clever because he never used to hit any one because he knew how to punish people mentally. 17 I am not sure that TILBROOK was ever aware as to what physical punishments that we ever got and whatever went on. He didn't want to get involved and he would turn a blind eye to it. But he always did the mental punishments that we got, he was always down to that one. He did use to cane the children and he used to have a cane that we called the 'Black Bomber' because it was quite a heavy thing and it was black in colour. He has caned me in the past. 18 I sat at the table and he said 'you haven't had your sweet yet' and I said 'I don't like Treacle, I'm not having it'. He said 'You're having it, you're not leaving this table till you have it'. I said, 'Well I'm bloody well not having it'. I wouldn't have it and I sat at that table for three days, without anything to eat. I didn't even go to school. When I say three days I mean three days, sat at that table and it was TILBROOK that made me do it. The other staff were obviously well aware of it and there was a couple of them who, when no one was looking they would pass me a sandwich or something, so I could eat something. There wasn't someone with me all the time but someone would come and check on me. Sometimes I would sneak to the toilet. If I had got up and gone to my room or gone out then someone would have known.

19 It ended because everyone had seen me sitting there for a few days and TILBROOK had proven his point to all the other people that if you don't eat then this is what you are going to get. No one was going to refuse to eat again would they after that. 20 In my own mind I wanted to defy them any way, I wanted to see if I could do it. Because I had strong will power, but it's hard to look back and say that. All I can remember, well even to this very day and also when I was in

that if I didn't see a reason for doing something then I would

not do it 21 It was after this that I ran away for about four days. I was with someone but I can't remember who it was. This other person was going to rob a church and I didn't want anything to do with it. So I went to a local farmer and he contacted the police and they picked me up and I was interviewed

and then they returned me to the home. I told the Police about what had happened to me and they said that they would make a report.

22 When I got back to the home I was taken to TILBROOK's office which was below his flat and 491

was there, because he was the punishment man. That was when I got the belt buckle.

TILBROOK said words to the effect that I would not be running away again. He said to that he would leave it down to him to whatever punishment he should give.

took me up to

my room and he told me to take my trousers and pants off, which I did and to lie on my bed. I

thought that I was going to get the cane but I looked behind me and I saw

491

removing his

own belt from around his waist. It was only when I turned my head I saw him taking his belt off and I thought 'shit'. I do remember I did 'shit myself and I wasn't one who was easily scared. He hit me six times with the buckle end of the belt on my buttocks. All I can say that it was a big leather belt and it was bloody heavy. It 'fucking hurt', I remember that and I definitely bled. When it was happening I just put my hand in my mouth and just tried not to scream or anything. I tell you one thing if I had a gun there and then I would have killed him that's for sure. 23 After he beat me, he said to get up and go and have a bath. I know I had a bath and I went downstairs. I was struggling to walk and I met a female member of staff, but I can't remember her name. I really liked her and she was a lovely lass with

She took me into the staff room and she had a look at it and she said 'you stay there my love and I'll be back in a minute'. She came back and put some lint or plasters on it or whatever it was

26 The way the beds and lockers were designed anyway, it was like having a private area and your own personal area. They could do things to you there and somebody could be a couple of beds away and unless they actually hear you scream, they would not know that anything was happening there. That is why sexual abuse could happen without people really knowing. 27 In relation to the cane, I was not scared of it, I've got to be honest. The cane to me was nothing and they even did that at school in them days. It was a regular thing. Even now to me personally I would not class that as abuse. There wasn't really a time when you didn't get the cane. I can remember the cane at school was a little cane but as I said the one at the home was called the 'Black Bomber'. I would just grin and bear it, whereas with other kids, once and that would be enough for them, they were petrified of it. I would always be caned on the hands, which left red welt marks and they were sore and I could not write for a few days. 28 Another example of what I would call mental abuse was when they built the new wing, because that was a disaster for quite a few of us. This was because they built two rooms and they were meant to be built for people on remand and they were two cells. They must be still there. They then started getting used just for punishment but I don't think people ever had as long as me and 493

did. I think most of them got a day if they were lucky. I would say the rooms were ten feet

by six feet with a big heavy door. It just had a wooden bed in it with a mattress on it and a pillow and blanket. There was a big window in there that was about two feet by three feet. The view out of the room that I was in for the three weeks was onto a field. The other one faced the 'drive-in' as you drive into Haut de le Garenne.

29 I was placed in there for three weeks and this was because I had been fighting with

were going to be placed in the rooms but I can't remember him saying for how long, but neither of us expected that we would be put there for three weeks. We thought we were going to be in there for a couple of days. It was the early evening when we were placed in there.

30 TILBROOK himself took us to the rooms and put us in there. There was nothing else in the room. You couldn't go to the toilet when you wanted to, so you had to ring a bell if you wanted to go to the toilet. I don't remember how long you had to wait before they came. I was wearing my own clothes but I can't remember if I changed them whilst I was in there. When I was in there, I was given breakfast, lunch, tea and supper. Once the others had gone to school then someone came

along and took us to the washroom. Apart from that we never left the room and we had nothing to do whilst we were in there. I didn't know whether it was night or day. I know that I was in there for three weeks because we counted them and I think we even marked it on the wall, but that has probably gone by now. The female member of staff that I liked used to come in to bring a match and a fag for me.

31 This is what I call mental torture. I think that this was one of the things that 'cracked

493

up' and 'did him'. His parents had gone and left him and he was in that room opposite me for three 493

weeks and I think that was one of the final things for 493

as a year and a half older than me. He was already depressed and then to go in there. I

think that he was going to run away again. I think we both were going to run away again. After this, we were arrested for an Arson and we went to the Magistrates Court and we were charged with the Arson. A few months after being put in the rooms he committed suicide. I knew he was suffering.

He told me that he was going to hang himself but I didn't believe him. 32 I have strong will power but even with me, I was seriously thinldng of doing some bad things, I tell you. It was driving me crazy, not even jigsaw to put up or read a book, there was nothing. You couldn't smash the glass believe me and I did try a few times. 33 It ended because one day, TILBROOKjust came and said 'right' and we came out. However the reason I think that I was released from there because I was at the St Hellier Boys school at the time and I was eleven and a half years then. The reason I say this is because after I was released from the cell, I went back to St Hellier boy's school and my teacher, whose name I can't remember, spoke to me. I was the

not tell the teacher what had happened because I was 'shit scared' of going back in that room again and for the same reason I didn't te!! anyone. 34 When left the room I just wanted to run away again and tell everybody, but I was just too scared until I got my confidence back. When I did get it back, that was after about two months, the staff were more scared of me than I was scared of them because I thought 'you would never put me in a place like that again' and they knew it. I was never put into that room again. 3 5 Other people were put into the cells as a punishment but I could not name them. I believe that the reason that this was done to us was because me an had willpower. By just doing it to me and

493

493

l didn't give up very easily and we

they knew that if they could break us two, and

the other kids weren't stupid, then they could break them. Maybe we were the heroes for some of the other children because we would do things or say things that they would really want to do and say themselves. TILBROOK would know that. 36 However when I was about 12 years of age, I was placed into Haut de la Garenne on remand from the Court. They did put me into the other room whilst I was on remand but I did have proper privileges this time. I think that I was one of the first people to be put on remand there. By then the home had a lot of young kids there and so someone then used to come from the system or probation or social services to check on them every week, even the people on remand. For a long period of

time there were no young children so there was no need for any one to come to check the cells, which was why they put children in there. 37 In relation to other occasions when I was injured or assaulted. There are a lot of things that I didn't look on as physical abuse. There was some things that I found were sore and I didn't like. I remember bars of soap being stuck down my mouth and I thought 'bloody hell'. My mouth would be really sore for two or three days.

38 This was done when I was caught swearing and it was whoever caught you swearing would report it to Mr TILBROOK and then the bar of soap would be put in your mouth and closed. That was horrible and your mouth used to froth up and you had to spray your mouth and your tongue would swell up. Your mouth used to be sore for days, for three or four days. You could never wash

it out because the more you washed it out the more bubbles were in your mouth to try and get rid of it. This happened to me on a few occasions and also a few other people got this. 39 It was a female that did it and I am trying to picture her but I can't remember her description but she was quite young about

and was white. I have spoken to my friend

about this woman and he reminded me that her name was

first name and she was there under

. I don't know her

and I think that she looked after the girls and

was also involved in the boy's side as well. She did not have a husband. She worked a day shift with us but could have worked a night shift on the girl's side and was not a teacher. She lived away from the home 40 In relation to the inspections, it really wasn't too bad in the juniors and intermediates, it was just normal inspections really, just like cleaning your hair, open your drawers, lift up your bed and search. It wasn't until I got older that it seemed to get worse I've got to be honest.

41 One of the other things that I did not like and I can think of no reason for them doing this and the only thing they could possible to this for was for fags, at the best. A few members of staff did

this and that would also be WILLIAMS and

491

but it would not be TILBROOK. We would

probably get it once a week or at least once a fortnight and they used to come into the dormitory and

you would have to get by the side of your bed and they would tip all your lockers out and throw it on the floor and tip all your beds up and you stripped down to nothing and stand to attention. That would be like two or three o'clock in the morning. This happened on a few occasions. 42 When I was in the junior group, we had a bath and nothing happened to me that I saw that I didn't like. When I moved into the senior group we had showers. 43 I disagree with people about the abuse that occurred, apart from the belt that I had off 491

that one time. I can't remember anything nasty that any of the staff did to me in the

home. There were discipline things which you would expect in an institution of any type. In them days some of the punishments like the cane, I would expect at school or fathers would do it to their sons probably, as I learnt from some of the kids at school that they would. So I would not

personally class that as abuse but obviously people have got different characters and I can only say about my own feelings. 44 We also used to be hit on the head and that used to be the normal and we used to get that all the time. Sometimes you didn't know why you got it for to be honest. You would not be 'bumping' the floor fast enough and then you would get a 'crack across the head' and told get on with it. To me that was not classed as abuse. It hurt though, it wasn't just a 'tap' it was a 'crack', you knew that you

had it. I don't know if it was my generation. I would never do it to a kid or touch my sons. All the

staff did this including

491

45 We also used to be flicked by a wet towel whilst in the showers but that was common place. We also did that to ourselves but we also did it to ourselves in

. I would not class that as

abuse, but I can only tell you how I feel, but if you want to class it as abuse. It 'bloody hurts', don't get me wrong and if you got a flick then 'bloody hell', you knew about it. I used to a red spot there for a while. To me in them days that was nothing and even in

when I was 21 years, that

was nothing. Mind you saying that, now I am looking at it with another perspective staff and grown

men doing it to a boy, a ten year old boy is slightly different. That happened all the time in the home.

46 I can't remember which member of staff did that but half the time your back was turned to them anyway. Sometimes you didn't know if it was one of the boys. 47 Thinking about it now, it didn't happen all that often in t

erhaps once a year. But you

didn't mean to hurt anyone that much. In the home you would be hit on the arse and no where else as far as I know. This happened occasionally, it wasn't all the time. I personally didn't class it as a big thing, but every human person is different and to a weaker person obviously that could have been a real big deal. 48 In the home, on the boy's side there was a hallway that goes to the inner court and there's a big long corridor. Halfway down that corridor was what they called a laundry room. That was where 491

used to take the boys, to give them a 'hiding'. That was where we used to be punished by

him personally. No one knew about it and it was out of sight of anyone. If

491

took you in

there, you felt sorry for the bloke straight away you thought 'shit' he's in trouble.

49 I went in there a few times. When I used to go home on weekends, I used to be allowed out of a day and my mother picked me up to take me out for the day on a Sunday. When ! came back, he used to take me straight away to the laundry room and search me completely. I would have to take all my clothes off and be naked. He would search you for things that you weren't allowed to bring back. There were no other members of staff there when he did it. He did not touch you sexually or anything like that but I don't know if he touched any of the other boys. This happened to me probably every Sunday that I went out and that was most Sunday's. He also used to do this to other children who came back from visits out. 50 I have had a couple of beatings from him in that room. Basically he would take me in there and say 'how many times did I warn you'. I would say that I hadn't done any thing and I would plead my case. You hadn't done anything because it was trivial to you, whatever he thought you did. That would be it and you would get 'crack' on both sides of the face with a 'backhander'. This went on until you said that you were sorry. It depended on how long it took for you to say sorry basically, as to how many 'cracks' you got. He never punched you, it was a 'backhander' and he was a bloke and it would knock you clean out. It gave you 'whip lash'. Sometimes I did not say sorry but some blokes did say sorry after they got just one. I am not saying that I was a big hard guy but some people have got different willpower and pain barriers. Probably because

I have never

given in to bully's. 51 When he hit me, sometimes it would nearly knock me out and it left yellow, red and maybe a bit of black, coloured bruises. The way that he did it, but I am not sure that it was deliberate, was he

hit you and you would fall to the floor and hit the other side of your face and probably get the same bruise on your other cheek. That was probably why he didn't give you a black eye because if you got two black eyes you can't say that you fell over can you. 52 He did this on the weekend and I would say that the reason this was done then, was so that the worse of the bruises had gone down by the time you went back to school. This happened to all the boys that I can remember.

53 Apart from hearsay, I did not witness any of the other boys being assaulted. I don't think anyone really saw any one getting assaulted and this was so that there were no witnesses. So that

were different from a lot of

people in the home because we would say something. With a lot of the others there was like whispers, like a dead silence but you knew. You just had to look at someone's face and you just knew, 'oh fucking, who's given you a bloody hiding'. It wasn't a language you used, you just knew, perhaps they were almost scared to get caught saying it. 56 I told the police when I gave myself up to them after I had run away of the abuse. I also told my psychiatrist as well of the abuse and she gave me advice to stand up for myself I told my mother of the abuse and also 'The Enquiry' after the death of

493

of the abuse. I also

told my probation officer. I also told my maths teacher at the school but I can't remember his name. I don't think it was taken seriously at the time. There had to be people outside the home who knew about the abuse because I know how many I told and I am sure that I can't be the only person from the home who went outside and told other people about it and I am taking about people in authority.

61 I know a lot of my mates who went to Haut de la Garenne, that have either committed suicide, become drug addicts, become alcoholics and never had what I would call a happily married life and kids. I believe that the reason why is because it is the home that has destroyed them in one way or another and I do feel upset about it. But I was lucky enough and have very strong will power so may be I was lucky. Don't get me wrong I have had bad patches where I have hit the drink. 62 I have never in my life been able to touch my kids although I have never had to because my voice was always enough. But subconsciously because of the children's home I would never have done it anyway.

Durin8 our oonvereotion I asked 124 who be loYed beet of everybody a t homo and without a cecondtl hesita tion bo eaid hie mother. Attar UO' oonveraation with 124 , I had a long t alk with . I told her what 124 had said end abo looked r a ther surprieed and admitted that ehe did not trr to ptt Aside e:rq particular time to Ulk:1.nc to 124 bo11t hi e eehool and his feelillge and th t she did not apend a.:rv ~ocial time with him but tha t her time was much IDOre takell up with tho ones .

A letter was eent to .Dr. !:ollins aaJdn& tor her op1n1on in wr1 till8 about ths preuent ai tuaUon with 124 o.nd u;plo.' ni114 that thernaa ooz:e thought that be raifsbt 'bone!U for a t~ a~ Baut de la 0Q.r(Jnno . I also diat:Ue&ed thia with llisa 'lbo:rnton who aereed in principle but s aid ehe would rather wait 1f poaaibla until Chriatmal betor. 124 was sont to Baut de la Ouerme.

I ~lephoned who aaid that he had ~ sent hia written report. He reiterated that he YBDted 124 to leave hia s chool u GOOD ae possi ble and that al tbou,sb ho was preparod for the bo7 to recei.D unUl Cbrietmaa i f th1o had to be, he felt that tbe awslln& vould continue and that t.Mre ould be turthor t.roubla, and fo:r his atm pe.rt lte would like him to leave as soon u poaeiblo . eaicl tlut he had aent oopiee of his report to the Direotor of Educdion nod to Dr. CollUie. Hr. Cnbot ulephonod l ater. Re h ad read r•port and wanted to know wh& t wao proposed tor 124 I e.xplail*l the baoqround or tho case and told him tb4t I bad diaouea«ld this with lliea Thomton rmd that the idea at the u;omelrt waa that 124 should go to Raut de l a Oarenne, but proba'bl.J" not until Cltriatrll40 . Ur. Cabot said that he knew that thore was a boy n-om Guornse7 for whom a place had been requea\ed at Haut de la Oarenne, but he tol ~, "obar1t7 'b-aino at hCII:Ile", and that ill view or the \UihaPP7 ai "WaUon that 124 was in he tel t that ba ahou1cl be given prloriv and that he would put forward the re~aUon that 124 whould b9 taken into Raut de la Oarenne ae aoon aa poaeible.

    124 vas first ack:itted at tho age of 10 to Haut de la Carenne on Novecber 1st. 1963 on a voluntary basis by order of the Constable o! St . Holier , following a roport of his stealing f r om local shops and from school . At that time ho was seen by Dr. M. Collins ,_senior Registrar, 124 was a severely Psychiatric Clinic who, in her r eport , noted that disturbed child who presented the typical picutre of the deprived child who had great ecotional needs which his mother was unable to supply 124 should because of her own difficulties in this respect , but that be encouraged to keep in close touch with hie mother.

    Dr. Collins ' assesscent was quickly confirmed by ~e and' at the time I noted that within the environment of Haut de la Caronna the child had a very agreeable personality and much charm; coupled with a degree of gullibility. Reports f r oc school were consistently favourable . 124 needed const~~t supervision but even At Raut de la Cerenne under these conditions he us eve~f opportunity to thwart authority and when given any freedoc , or ~ supervision was relaxed , he became even more unreliable and untrustworthy and was frequently involved in minor sots of indiscipline as well as stealing froc cecbers of staff and other chUdnn .



    In a Depart mental report early in 1956 I noted t hat although basiscally 124 friendly , often a delightful child, was lacking in stability, resentful of discipline , deceitful and often trucc~ent . I n May of 1966 l was involved Parish of St. John .

    124

    absconded frot!: Haut de la Carenne and with 220 ling and also with damaging an unused car in the The boys were severely cautioned by the Constable .

    In September 1966 it was apparent that no real p:ogress had been made with 124 and it was decided to take the calculated risk of returning him to his own home under supervision of a Child Care Officer to see whether he could make a better r esponse there . However, within weeks he was involved with others in furtter trouble and was eventually charged in co~plicity ~~th arson (see Mr. Thomson ' s present report) ,



    124 s very deep seated unhappiness are not difficult The reasons for to understand . He has been able to establish any warmth of relationship ~~th his mother and has, trJoughout cost of his life been completely lacking in all the essentials necessary to a developing personality. He fe els himself to be unloved , rejected ~,d unwanted . Bis mother ' s attitude is basically cold and fre~uently 'hostile to the boy, who is now uncaring and frustrated and 1.8 una~le to face t he futuro with even tho slightest hope of any real cocfort . A tremendous w:ount of time he.s been spent by the Children ' s Dopartment in 124 attempts to get a better underst~,di~~ between nd his mother but I fear 124 the reasons for a:1d attitudes are noli too deep seated for us to hold out ~"'!Y f"urthe::- hopes of success .

    The Children's Depart~::e:nt has no11 exhausted a ll po5sible chan."lels of help for t his boy , who so badly needo the stability of a norcal loving home , and is left with no nlternativo than regretfully to recommend be be sent to an Approved School .

This be~ a fixed pattern and at the age of nine he was said to be ' stealing on a large scale and 124 to be a ready and fertile liar ' although quite intelligent . was also seen as ' disturbed ' and ' deprived ', a possible contributory factor 124 being his father's permanent desertion of the family when was about two years old . Also at the age of nine his violent temper and aggression towards other chil dren was noted .

    In November, 1963 ,

    124

    was admitted to Haut de la Garenne but the disturbed pattern of behaviour continued and in September, 1966 he was discharged horne not having made any progress . Two days later, with other Juveniles, he set fire ; this resulted in his being made subject of a Probation Order for three years . It was now felt that his needs might be met at a particular Children ' s Home in and he was transferred there in January, 1967; in March however, he was excluded from school as difficult and impudent and his education was not resumed until September that year . The hopes of the authorities which had been inherent in this transfer were not realised ; in November, 1967 he was reported as stealing from shops and houses . His return to Jersey was requested by the school 124 and returned to his Mother ' s care in December, 1967 . In February, 124 1968 , now aged fourteen got into trouble at school and attempted 124 to stow away on a boat; the Police became involved and was reported as ' insolent and unco- operative '.

    OPERATION RECTANGLE FINAL REPORT Prepared by Detective Inspector Alison Fossey September 2010

    EVENTS LEADING UP TO OPERATION RECTANGLE

    2.1

    Police enquiries into suspected child abuse at HDLQ began with an investigation

    in 2003. The suspect in this investigation was I(a former resident o f HDLG 1963 - 1969) and the |. He was a frequent visitor to the

    home who was allowed by staff to take boys out on day trips over a number of years.

    alleged that he was the victim o f buggery, indecent

    assault and acts of gross indecency at the hands of

    during these

    trips and this was the|

    Unfortunately whilst his complaint o f sexual abuse was believed to be genuine there was'no corroborative evidence and therefore it was deemed by the force legal adviser at that time that there was insufficient evidence to mount a prosecution. This was indicative o f the legal position at that time which is still current today, namely, that it is the long standing policy and practice of the Jersey courts that in cases involving alleged sexual offences a corroboration direction must be given as follows:

    .

    “Experience has shown that people who say that sexual offences have been committed against them sometimes and for a variety o f reasons tell lies. Such false allegations are easy to make and frequently difficult to challenge even by an entirely innocent person. So it is dangerous to convict on the evidence of the complainant alone unless it is corroborated, that is independently confirmed, by other evidence.”

    8

    2.2

    how ever, n ot only alleged that he had been a victim o f sexual abuse at the hands o f ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ b u t also Thom as H A M O N , a previous house father at H D LG . In 2005 Thom as HA M O N w as charged w ith num erous offences o f historical indecent assault relating to nine separate com plainants These occurred during the tim e that he was associated w ith HDLG and St Jo h n ’s Am bulance, betw een 1964 and 1989. H A M O N pleaded guilty in A pril 2006 and w as due to attend court for sentencing w hen he suffered a heart attack and died.

    2.3

    D uring the investigation into Thom as H A M O N it becam e apparent that was not an isolated victim at HDLG. In addition, according to a report prepared by Acting D etective Inspector Peter H EW LETT, there w as a perception w ithin the Island, w hich had existed for m any years, that H D LG was a sinister place w here residents w ere abused. Som e o f them w ent on in later life to becom e involved w ith the Police on a regular basis and it is also a fact that a few w ent on to take their own lives as they struggled to cope on a

    1

    day to d ay basis. In accordance w ith ACPO G uidance on the Investigation o f H istorical Institutional Child A buse (2002), A cting D etective Inspector Peter H EW LETT, undertook a scoping exercise to ascertain the size o f the potential enquiry. This docum ent was subm itted in April 2006 to the States o f Jersey Police M anagem ent Team . N o action was taken at that tim e, however, the report w as not specific about w hat type o f abuse occurred at the children’s hom e and identified no victim s.

    Will State: 1. I am making this statement of my own free will and during this statement I will describe certain events that happened to me whilst I lived at Haut de la Garenne. I have not given any names or identified any places that are not purely within my own knowledge. The police have not forced me to say anything that I don't want to say or did not know before the Police spoke with me. 2. The circumstances of me going into Haut de la Garenne are that my mum used to go in and out of hospital a lot and I believe that I went in there on two or three occasions. The first time that I went in there was between-the ages of four, five maybe six years old. I was only in there for I believe two to three weeks. The person who was in charge of the home at the time was a Mr MAGGS. I was too young really to go in there and I was just petrified 3. When I went into the home on a full time basis I remember that a Mr TILBROOK was in charge 491

    of the home and a TILBROOK was

    was his

    and he was married.

    491

    was

    when

    I cannot remember if this was what I am calling the second time that I

    went in.

    4. I know that When I went into Haut de la Garenne on a fuli time basis, it was either 196 l or 1962 and I would have been aged seven or eight years old at the time. I cannot remember if this was the second occasion that I went in or a subsequent occasion. I can say that nay mother died in 1966 and I stayed at the home because of this until the age of 16 years. 5. When I went into the home, I started off in the junior group and I cannot remember who was in charge of this group. At the time there were the juniors, intermediate and then the senior group. During my time there, I moved up through the groups to the seniors but I cannot say the ages that I moved between the groups. However when I was in the senior group then I had started at the St Heliers boys school.

    Mr WILLIAMS and h

    ere in charge ofthe senior group. She was in charge of the senior

    girls so I calmot say a lot about her. Mr WILLIAMS was in charge of the senior boys. 7. The other boys that I can remember who were in the senior group at the time I was there were

    338, 284 & 186

    here was boy called E

    and a

    There were so many people that were coming and going that i cannot remember. I am unsure about the spelling of these names. 8. I can remember that my

    as also in there but he was five years

    older than me and in a different group. There was also a

    493

    and we were later

    told that he had been playing in a tree and that he had slipped out of the tree and the rope went round his neck and it was an accident and he had died. I later found out that

    but

    we were never told about this at the time. 9. They were saying thatpeople were disappearing, well they were but not like that. People would be there one week and gone the next and all we were told that they had gone back to their parents or gone back home I would not have questioned this. I had no reason to believe that there had been any foul play or anything like that. I do not remember the names of any of these children. 10. In relation to my experiences at Haut de Ia Garenne, I can say that I was never sexually abused and I might have been physically abused because of some of the things that we were made to do and I saw this as a punishment for being naughty and this was considered the normal and you did not

    think any thing of it. 11. I can say that one of the punishments was known as 'buffering' the corridor. The staff would wme aÿuulxd vviÿi ilallU±U_lo oi I..]uiiÿ11 allU CliiUw IL Ull LI±ÿ:; l.Iuul uJ_ tIIU tQUlllklUl. I ULI Wgig ÿIVUIJL Llllb

    lump of steel with a rag on the end and you had to use this to buff the flooring. The reason that you

    were made to do this was if you were caught play fighting with the others or pillow fighting with them, smoking or you were out of bed when you shouldn't have been. If you caught doing this during the day there was a different form of punishment. This punishment only occurred at night if

    you were caught at night. I used to hate doing this punishment but you just got on with it and accepted it as your punishment and that was it. 12o Williams who was in charge of our group, was prone for this in coming and 'lobbing' you out of bed. This would happen if you were caught mucking about and it happened to me and nine out of

    ten times it would be he that did this. However if WILLIAMS was away and charge then it was

    491

    491

    was in

    that would do it. Every time that you made the bed he would strip it

    again.

    13. I remember that there was one occasion when WILLIAMS tripped a boy backwards and the

    boy hit his head at the end of the bed. The boy had said something to him and Williams thought he would try to be clever by tripping him up. The mattress had been stripped off and exposed the metal. The boy split his head wide open and it was frightening that night because there was so much blood. They had to rush him off to hospital and we thought that they had 'done him in' because of the blood that was in the bedroom but he came back with a load of stitches in his head. I think the boy's name might have been

    .

    14. Another punishment that I can remember is that if I was caught smoking for example then

    TILBROOK would make me go and stand outside his flat all night. When this happened there were • .

    occasions when I didn't know that he had forgotten me I thought he had done it on purpose but as an adult looking back on it, I believe that he has forgotten me and gone to bed. It wasn't on every occasion that I was left there all night and I believe that this happened on about three occasions. The rest of the times that it happened it was only two to three hours possibly four° If I had walked back to my dormitory I don't lmow what he would have done.

    15. Me and

    did not like each other that much and we were always fighting and

    niggling each other. If we started to fight then WILLIAMS would clear the dining room and close the dining room doors and tell us to 'get on with it', until one of us came out and touchwood that was always me. You would come out with split lips, cut eyes and literally you fought until one of you were standing and the other one had given up. That happened quite a few times but also to the other kids but it

    . We were made to go into the

    room and c!osed the doors and told to get on with it. WILLIAMS used to wait outside until one of us came out.

    and it was only when th

    were off

    mainly when the

    17. There were occasions that I was going to the others by bus and also because the

    ere not there. and I used to have to go to they used to put me in the detention

    rooms so that I did not disturb the others. I used to sleep in there and the door was unlocked so I could come and go when ever I wanted to. It was just like having another room because there was no where else they could put me. 18. However there were other occasions when I was put in there after I had run away from the home and this was as a punishment. I used to run away because I was sick to death of being made to

    do things that you did not want to do and I did this six or seven times. It was always TILBROOK who put me in there. I would describe the room as a room with a window that looked out over the car park or hedge and it has a mattress and nothing else. I had to ring a bell that was in the room to be allowed out to go to the toilet and then the staff would come and ask you what you wanted and let you out. They didn't always come straight away. There was no toilet in there and no washing facilities but you were allowed out to wash in the morning. There was a light in there but it was controlled by the,staff. There was no recreation and you just stayed in there and slept. If you were lucky then someone might have left a book in there to read from a boy that was in there before you. ! can remember a tray coming round at six o'clock with food. I can't remember breakfast time but I think that I had toast or cereal and for lunch something like macaroni cheese on toast for lunch. 19. On these occasions which were quite a few times I can remember being held in the detention rooms all over the weekend from Friday and you would come out on either a Sunday evening or Monday morning.

    20. When I was put in there I would be 'cheesed off' and thought 'oh not this again' but you put up with it and get on with it because there was nothing else that you could do as it was part of the life in there. You couldn't say that you didn't want to go in there because they would just end up putting you in there anyway

    21, I can remember when I was seven or eight years old that the senior girls seemed to be put in charge of us. For some reason it was always

    who was 15 or 16 at the time and ifI

    did something wrong then some of the senior girls made me get into her bed and lie there with her until I was told to get out again, This happened on four or five occasions, i was petrified when this happened and I used to lay there and nothing happened and I did not move, I was mortified that this happened and thinking about this now there would be no member of staff around at the time. I don't know how she felt about this at the time. At some stage the girls would then come to you and tell you to get out and go back to your own bed which I did. This also happened to other boys who were made to get into other giris beds. 22. Williams used to give you a clout every now and again and he was quite violent. He would

    deliberately shoulder barge you and knock you up against a wall and things like that and knock you flying. TEat happened loads of times no matter where you were he would do it. He did this loads of times to me but it wasn't just to me he was doing it to everybody. 23. I never complained to any one about this because there was no one to complain to you just accepted it. I did want to c'omplain about the treatment but I was too scared because you didn't know what would happerÿ to you. Other people did complain and they were taken,away and I thought they might be caned. I was scared that if I did then I would be caned but I never was as it was just the fear of it. 24. There was one occasion when the senior boys and I cannot remember who it was butt we had

    been told by

    123

    that WILLIAMS had been touching her up and been touching her

    breasts. She had confided in the senior boys about what had been going on and she said that she did not know who to turn to. We had then asked

    he did and we told him what had been going on.

    anymore that we would be for the high jump and we could end up making WILLIAMS lose his job if we said anything. 25. I used to wet the bed and as a result I used to have to go to the shower and I always seemed to be late and the last in the shower. I would be naked and WILLIAMS used to get a towel and wet the

    end of it and would flick me with the end of it whilst I was in the shower. This used to hurt and I Signature:

    would get red 'whelt' marks and lumps over my back, legs, arms and backside where I was hit so hard. I was never hit in the testicles because you would move fast and get out of the bathroom. I was 13 or 14 years old when this happened. This also used to happen to other boys who had also 491

    wet the bed. This was done to them by WILLIAMS but I saw was off. There was also some man called

    do it to us if WILLIAMS

    but I am not sure of his name who was member

    of staff who also used to do it to us and other members of staff also used to do it but I can't remember their names. They used to do it with a wet towel because it hurt more.

    26. Us boys used to flick each other with dry towels but this was in fun. The staff did it to get us 195

    out of the showers quick. The other boys that I saw this happening to were and 371

    ut I would only see

    91 n the dining room because

    he was older, I don't remember anything happening to them. 28. I saw in the news that some one had said that TILBROOK had been seen carrying a pillow when he used to walk around the dormitories and that he used the pillow to muffle the girls. I used

    to see TILBROOK walking around with a pillow on a number of occasions but I thought that he had just picked it up and I never saw him 'muffling the girls' or being horrible to any body. Looldng back on it now I do think that this was odd. 29. I used to wet the bed but I do not know why I did this and I also used to 'pound' the pillow with my head when I was asleep and I also found out that my brother

    also used to do the same.

    The night nurse used to wake me up and take me down to where

    was sleeping and used to

    show me that this was what but she had

    And can you just explain the reason behind that? • I, I suppose it was probably because of the situation up af the home, yeah, because my belief is, is that we shouldn't have ever been put up there anyway, because it was in brackets supposed to be for children that were naughty, yeah? And, and that, as we

Your, your, looking back now on it, how, how do you feel about the home itself and what you've you went through and you explained yesterday. Well I hated it. I hated it. You know- and, when I had boyfriends, when I was. at school and they used to want to come pick me up I, I would say no, because my parents, I had to, I always lied about where I lived, you know, because, yeah, it was

    just embarrassing to be living there. And when the boyfriends found out that I was living at the home then they didn't want anything to, to do with me any more, you know, so yeah.

    BC 169

And from the very first week that I Was in the group the boys were, were being hit and beaten by

    him and he used to have a lighter in his pocket that he always used to have. And I mean if he didn't have that in his pocket then he used to pick up a billiard ball and 41

    throw it. And

    169

    Well it' s, if they looked a little bit urn, if they gave a smirk then he would ask, why are you doing that? And then they would give a stupid answer. And then they'd get one, you know, so.

    BC 169

    BC

    And when you say get one, what do you mean by it, what - ? Hand or fist or, or pushed into the wall and held up against and then hit, you know. Yes, I mean, it, it's not, it's on tape so...

    Telephoned and told her that I bad beeb made aware of the developments while I nad been out of the Island. I told her that I intended seeing at H. de la G. this evening and suggested that I should come to see her and the family tomorro~ afternoon. This seemed to be convenient to them so I arranged to call about · 4 p.m. tomorrow. ftent to H. de la G. this evening and saw together with t-Sr . Tilbrook. I told that I am extreme~y worried about t he allegations that he has made and obviously it is my duty to sort the 1nattor out. I told h1m that he must tell me truthf~ly anything that has occured at the sinco be wont to live there, with part.icular reference to arranbemEnts made for sleeping. then told u1e that when he first went to tho he was put Ln a room on his own and this had continued until around the Christmas holiuay when the were expecting visitors to stay with them and had to change the bedrooms uround . At this stage, he had slopt in a double bed with . and this had lastod for about one week. 1 asked if he had ubjeotod at the time to sharing a bed with Snr. and he said he bad not in the first instance, but after three or four days he bo.d told that he did not like i t and had tolti him that he would "vet him out of it" I asked why he had obJected and he said that on one occasion during tho ni~ht he had discovered that 's hand was on his bare stomach . I asked him if ad moved hie hand to tuucb him anywhere else and he said ' No•. He ~so told me that he be~ievod that at ~hat time . asleep as be was broathlng heavily. a~reod with me that it could well have been that ad turned over in his sleep and automatically put his arm aro~d . assured me that at no other timo had ttempted to interfere with him or made improper su~geetions to him. told me that after he had complained to Jnr. he had been moved into anothor room, but short~y before laet weekenc he had been moved back into om where he had his own sing.le bod. I asked him if any t hin~ had occured under these circumetan and he said that on one occasion when he was in bed, ad eat on tho end o£ the bed ta1king to him and asked him why he seemed ao fed up.

    X then asked

    if he had at any time told anyone that a "Queer", stressing that i t Yas terribly important that he to he truth in thia respect as I intended ta1king with nd wanted to know exactly what had happened. denied emphatically saying this or anythLng like it to anyone . Before leaving, I again asked if at any time had made i1npropor suggestions to him and he assured me that he had not . Cont'd •••••• • ••

    as arr~•ged this afternoon and saw on her own and spoke with her about the matters leading up to leaving . ~he told me that both she ond her brother- in- law are extremely concerned that should be making allegations and when I told her that had denied calling . "<,tueor", she said that this waa untrue because he had in £act suid this to her aome t~o or three weeks ago and also said that he thought ~bat . fancied him . I told her ~hat had told me last evening and abe informed me that himself had voluntered to sleep in the same bed aa when the house wus being reorganized to take Christmas visitors. At no time bad this been forced upon him and when he had suid he did not like it , and stresses that he made this com-laint to bur und ~ to her husband, he had been moved into another room . At this stage he had said that he tlJought £ancib d him . I asked what her attitude to this had been and she immediately told not to be silly aa she is quite certain that nothing improper ever will take place between her brother in law and another male . If she thought this abe would not be living in the same house with her children . Call ed at

    I then saw and ~ediately pointed out to him extrem&y foolish he had been to sleep in the same bed aa . I made it clear to him that I disapproved of this but i t was quite obv1oua to ae that he himself had seen nothing wrong in i t and bad not realized the situation in which he might place himaolf .

    ~~

    I told him quite directly of the allegation.& that had made and hie first reaction to this ~as that he ~ould consult hie Solicitor , but after some d1scussion, he agreed with me that this wo uld eerve no useful purpose . Having discussed the situation completely and freely with I am s a tisfied that the s l eeping arrangemunta ~ere made quite innocently and that n oth ing intentional happened . I am perfectly

    satisfi~d

    Will state: 1

    I am the above named person and I am making this statement of my own free will. During

    this statement I will describe certain events that happened to me whilst I was a resident at the Haut de La Garenne children's home in Jersey between 1957 and December 1965. I have not given any names or identified any places that are not purely within my own knowledge. The police haven't forced me to say anything I don't want to say ordid not know before the Police spoke to me. 2

    I first went into the Haut de La Garenne children's home at the age of 7 years of age in

    1957.I had previously asked for my personal file from the Jersey Archives and all I had back from them was one piece of paper that did not really tell me a lot about my days at the home. 3

    From what I have gathered, I went into the home because I stole money out of my mums

    purse and because of this I• was sent to the home. I had not been in trouble with the Police before and my recollection is that the Police dumped me at the home and I was placed into a dormitory with 30 to 40 other kids. I do not know if there was any other reason for me being in that home.

    4

    I know that I was joined later by

    195

    nd

    ..............

    nd I believe that this was in the 1960's. The reason for this was because my mother became ill and so they were placed there and this was after I was placed in there. When my mother got better then

    195

    were taken out again but then

    was placed back into the home. I have t

    195

    ho are J

    got into trouble and and as far as I

    know they never went into Haut de la Garenne and when I used to go back home to visit,

    did not know Who I was and thought I was just a visitor. 5

    When I went into the home I would describe myself as a normal 7 year old and would defy

    your parents that sort of thing. But when you are put in the home you learnt not to be defiant and even at that age I realised that if you stepped out of line then you soon got 'a belting'.

    When I went to 'the home in !957, a Mr MAGGS was the superintendent incharge ofthe

    home and directly under him was a Mr MALLINSON, who ended up malTying was there most of the time that I was. There was a M

    nd he

    who was also there when I first

    arrived and he left after a couple of years. At some stage, but I don't know when, but a Mr TILBROOK took over from Mr MAGGS, as the superintendent, when I was aged about 13-14 years old,

    491

    arrived to start work.

    7 When I first arrived at the home I was placed into the Junior group and this was situated on

    the left hand side of the wing as you are looking at the front of the building and later when the girls I

    ....

    moved inthey took over this dormitory.

    up by the junior dormitory and I

    remember that when I first arrived there and at the age of 7 years, he used to come into the junior dormitory and take me by the hand. At the age of 7 years I had not got a 'fucking clue' as to what was happening. He would then lead me to his room and took my pyjamas off and I would be naked.

    He then used to 'play with me' and by this I mean that he used to take my penis with his hands and he used to masturbate me. He also used to get me 'ÿco play with him' and by this I mean he used to get me to masturbate his penis. I can say that his penis was hard and that I used to see stuff coming out of his penis. I later realised that he was ejaculating. 8 I cannot remember him ever saying anything to me as he was doing this and this went on for about a month to six weeks. This happened on a number of occasions and it was always at night. I can say thatn0 0ther sexual assaults occurred such as anal or oral sex and he did not ask for this to

    happen. I did complain at the time to MALLINSON and I think that he hit me and told me not to tell lies. As a result of this I did not mention the abuse to any one else. However shortly after telling

    MALLINSON, the abuse by

    stopped but I don't know if this was connected but I think it

    was because I had said something. [

    ..

    I did not ask him to stop, because at the age of 7 years you don't understand do you. I do not

    know ifany other of the boys in the dormitory saw him coming in and taking me out of the room and if they did they kept quiet about it. I never told any of the other boys what was going on. I don't knOW if any other boys were being taken from their beds in a similar manner and were abused. 10 I was also s_exually abused by a man called

    264

    and the circumstances of this

    are that he was not a member of staff as I far as I am aware. He and his wife used to visit the home Signature:

    and then after a period of time he used to visit on his own. He would visit about once a week and this was mainly on the weekends and the purpose of this visit was to take the boys out. The reason 264

    that I believe that

    mainly visited on the weekend because we were at school during the

    week. I don't know why he was allowed to take the children out and I am assuming that he must have had authority to take the boys out and this could only have come from TILBROOK. I don't

    know if he was particularly friendly with any member of staff but if he was then it was kept out of sight. He would take no more than three children out at any one time to my knowledge and normally it appeared to be two children at a time. "i"

    say on a few occasions that he had gone away and I assumed that was in the course of his work. 12 He used to drive a silver c

    hat could have been

    in colour but it was

    in good condition. When I had been in the car, in relation to the event I am going to describe, I

    thought that it was an automatic and right hand drive. It did not have any seatbelts and the date of the incident I believe was 1964 and you did not have to wear seatbelts in those days. I have been asked to describe the inside of the car and I am unable to remember this but it may have had a radio in it. He used to turn up in this car at the home.

    13 I was told that he had a speedboat that he kept at Gorey Harbour and he used to take the boys out in it. I never went out in it because I did not trust him. I cannot give you any more details about this boat.

    hadn't gone far. Then he leant over and placed his hand between my legs and I felt his hand touch my testicles over my clothes. There was no way that this was an accident as the car was automatic so he wasn't changing gear and there was no seatbelt to fasten and I then punched him on the jaw and got out of the car. Theabuse only happened on this one occasion

    16 That was the last time that I got into his car and it was the only time that I got into the car when there was no other child with me. I never told any one about this because there was no point and there was no one to tell and you kept things to yourself.

    After I left Haut de La Garenne at the age of 15 and a half years, I joined the army and this

    would have been in 1966 and I was discharged in 1967 at the age of 17 years. I then returned to Jersey and I started work with a

    used to live

    in a flat upstairs from the senior group dormitory. At night sometime between 10 and 11 o'clock when some of the boys, including me' used to talk and if

    491

    heard any noise then he would

    come downstairs and into our dormitory. He would make us get out of bed first and there were about 20 beds in there. He would then tip up every one of the beds and the mattress and bedclothes would go everywhere. He would then force us to make the beds and if he wasn't happy xvith this

    then he would tip the beds up again and force us to make the beds again and he could do this up to three times a night. This would happen at least once a week. This happened to me on a number of occasions and I also witnessed it happening to other children in the same dormitory.

    24

    If we still.did not do it properly then we would be forced to wire 9.7ool and polish the 491

    corridor. We had to do this until

    ould come back. Sometimes he would notcome back

    until the morning and we would be left there all night. If another member of staff came and told us to go to bed then we knew that he would make our lives hell in the morning. This happened to me on a number of occasions and I also witnessed it happening to other children in the same dormitory and this happened about two or three times a week.

    things hadn't gone his way. If

    Form MG 11 (T) Page 7 of 11 491

    had an argument with his wife then the treatment would be

    even worse. He also used to throw things at you, such as ash trays, books, snooker balls, slippers or what ever was to hand. These would hurt and some times these would leave lumps and bruises and depending on whether you were walking to him or away from him then it would depend where you would be hit on your body, your back on your chest, legs and shoulders or on the head if he caught you properly This used to mainly happen in the TV room as this was where the snooker table and balls were kept and other children who were in there would see what was going on. This happened to me on a number of occasions and I also witnessed it happeningto other children from the same dormitory. But we never said anything as you had to go through TILBROOK first as he was the boss and there was no point.

    26 I went to TILBROOK on three or four occasions and complained about my treatment by 491

This would be all over the body and on your legs, backside, the top of your body and a couple of times I was hit in the testicles. This hurt and would leave 'welt' marks and redness. This happened to me on a number of occasions and I also witnessed ithappening to other children in the same dormitory. I saw injuries on other boys but we never reported it.

    would have stabbed him. I thiN< that one of his biggest fears was to bump into one of us in the street once we had left the home. 30 I felt very angry about the way that I was being treated and I left as soon as I could. 491

    said that the only way to get out was to join the army and so I did but I didn't want to join

    but I had to in order to get away from the home: I left the home at the age of 15 and a half years and joined the army as a boy soldier. However I wanted to get out so I broke into a house to get caught

    but I was not caught. A friend of mine had a bike and I bought it from him and it turned out that it was stolen and then I got chucked out of the army. However I joined back up in 1971 and stayed in the Army for 9 years. 31 At some stage when I was in the army the first time, I received a call from my mother to say 493

    that a friend of mine called

    ad hung himself. That my mother said that it

    was due to an impending court case and his family would not go to Court to support him but I don't think that this was the case. I have felt very guilty over the years that I was not there to 'protect him'.

    I believe that he was being abused in the home and that was why he did it however I had not been told this or witnessed this because 'they were too crafty' but this is my belief. I could not say who was abusing him as the staffjust came and Went soyou couldn't keep track of them. The staff who stayed there were MAL

    32 I used to go to a number of schools in Jersey and on occasions I used to receive the cane. This was as a punishment for something that I had done. I usually received three canes on each hand and you accepted this. However in the Haut de La Garenne home, you would receive six canes on each hand andthen six on the buttocks. The punishment was meted out by TILBROOK and whoever sent you up there for the punishment which would also be present when you were caned

    and this would either b

    491

    or MALLINSON. However if TILBROOK was away then the

    punishments were given to MALLINSON or

    491

    o carry out. The punishments were done in

    such a way that I believe that they enjoyed it and it was different from the punishment that you got at school. Looking back on this form Of punishment Icould have killed him and he doesn't know how close he came to getting killed. It was a pleasure to him to cane a child. 33 TILBROOK was a 'sadistic bastard' and he didn't just pick on anyone he picked on everyone. It was his role to dish out the punishment and the code of punishment at Haut de La Garenne 126 Signature:

    seemed to be to 'beat the crap out of you'. if they dished out punishment like that nowadays then you would be locked up for it. I would say that we were treated like 'shit' at the home and everything was done the way they wanted it done, you couldn't do anything that you wanted to do. By 'they' I mean the staff that worked there. 34 I was aware that there were detention rooms but I was never put in them I thiN( that he got his pleasure out of physical and mental abuse. I never went into the rooms and I did not want to go in there and this was based on a feeling of fear. There were two brothers who were 62

    and

    who were both a bit backward and I know they were placed in there although I do not

    know the circumstances of this or what happened to them once they were in there and I didn't ask them. It was sufficient to know that I did not want to go in there as I thought that I wouldn't get out. 35

    I know that there has been a lot of media interest in the investigation at Haut de la Garenne

    but I have tried not to watch it. My mother was going to send me newspaper clippings about it but I

    said that I did not want her to. I have been asked by DC ROBINSON about the cellars at the home and I have not seen much about them on the news. I don't know where they came from as I never went into them and I never saw the cells that they are on about, but we used to play under the floorboards. The room was on the left hand side wing as you are looking at the front of the house and under the play area and the floorboards had been cut into a square and could be lifted up, but I don't know who cut them. The only reason that you would cut the floorboards like that are as an inspection hatch. There were no steps or light down under these floorboards and we used to use torches to see down there. We used to play down there and to see what we could find which was mainly oldnewsPapers, magazines, old tins and bottles that has been lying around for years. I never left anything down there although I don't know if the others did. There was always graffiti around

    the building and you got into trouble if you got caught writing graffiti. I don't know if there was any graffiti in the area under the floorboards but I certainly did not write any. I do not know any body calle

    301

    This area under the floorboards was the width of the wing. If you got caught down

    there by the staff then you were dragged out and you were up for a 'hiding'. It was a game between them and us and we always used to come up covered as 'black as the ace of spades'.

This abuse included having the beds tipped up and made to make the bed again, having to clean the stairs with wire wool and buffing them, having to stay up for long periods of time to do this. We were also made to stand in the toilet for long periods of time. Being

    more effect. I would not discipline my children in the way that I was disciplined because the treatment at Haut de la Garenne was cruel and barbaric. The impact of my time at Haut de la Garenne has made me very distant from people and although I have acquaintances I only have three what I call close friends. The experience of this.place is always there and you try and put it to the back of your mind and get on with you life and I feel that there was never anyone there to give me any help.

    seemed to be to 'beat the crap out of you'. if they dished out punishment like that nowadays then you would be locked up for it. I would say that we were treated like 'shit' at the home and everything was done the way they wanted it done, you couldn't do anything that you wanted to do. By 'they' I mean the staff that worked there. 34 I was aware that there were detention rooms but I was never put in them I thiN( that he got his pleasure out of physical and mental abuse. I never went into the rooms and I did not want to go in there and this was based on a feeling of fear. There were two brothers who were 62

    and

    who were both a bit backward and I know they were placed in there although I do not

    know the circumstances of this or what happened to them once they were in there and I didn't ask them. It was sufficient to know that I did not want to go in there as I thought that I wouldn't get out. 35

    I know that there has been a lot of media interest in the investigation at Haut de la Garenne

    but I have tried not to watch it. My mother was going to send me newspaper clippings about it but I

    said that I did not want her to. I have been asked by DC ROBINSON about the cellars at the home and I have not seen much about them on the news. I don't know where they came from as I never went into them and I never saw the cells that they are on about, but we used to play under the floorboards. The room was on the left hand side wing as you are looking at the front of the house and under the play area and the floorboards had been cut into a square and could be lifted up, but I don't know who cut them. The only reason that you would cut the floorboards like that are as an inspection hatch. There were no steps or light down under these floorboards and we used to use torches to see down there. We used to play down there and to see what we could find which was mainly oldnewsPapers, magazines, old tins and bottles that has been lying around for years. I never left anything down there although I don't know if the others did. There was always graffiti around

    the building and you got into trouble if you got caught writing graffiti. I don't know if there was any graffiti in the area under the floorboards but I certainly did not write any. I do not know any body calle

    301

    This area under the floorboards was the width of the wing. If you got caught down

    there by the staff then you were dragged out and you were up for a 'hiding'. It was a game between them and us and we always used to come up covered as 'black as the ace of spades'.

    . I am able to say that I witnessed abuse against all of these boys at some time or another whilst we were at the home. This abuse included having the beds tipped up and made to make the bed again, having to clean the stairs with wire wool and buffing them, having to stay up for long periods of time to do this. We were also made to stand in the toilet for long periods of time. Being

    hit and hurt by the wet towels and being hit on the back of the head with the hand and hit with snooker balls, books, ashtrays, slippers etc. The person responsible for all this wa

    am aware that although I did not see the canings I saw the marks that the canings had left on the other boys and they saw mine. I never received any medical treatment for my injuries to my knowledge but you tended to keep the bruises to yourself. The person mainly responsible for the

    canings was TILBROOK, although if he wasaway then

    491

    or MALLINSON used to do it. I

    would like to add that I believe that every one of the boys that I have listed above may also have 264

    been taken out b

    physically and verbally abused me. I am also sure as to the identity of sexually assaulted me. I am also sure as to the identity o

    264

    sexually assaulted me even though I was 7 years of age at the time. I am willing to support a police 491 prosecution against my abusers and I want to be in court whe is there, I shall make a

    point of being there 38 My experience at Haut de la Garerme has affected how I deal with my own children. They may have got a slap on the leg but being Sent to bed and not being allowed to watch television had

    more effect. I would not discipline my children in the way that I was disciplined because the treatment at Haut de la Garenne was cruel and barbaric. The impact of my time at Haut de la Garenne has made me very distant from people and although I have acquaintances I only have three what I call close friends. The experience of this.place is always there and you try and put it to the back of your mind and get on with you life and I feel that there was never anyone there to give me any help.

    My father decided to go and live in England and take my

    sisters, who were living at home

    at the time. The rest of us he put in Haut De La Garenne and we never heard from him again. That was the last we heard of him. I was going on 12 years old. 5

    passed away in 2003 in

    My brother

    I think he died in

    Bospital.

    We brought his ashes back to Jersey, otherwise he was on his own. I had him buried with my mother over here. 9

    Haut De La Garenne was a massive place that for us coming from a house was something that

    we had never seen before in our life. It was divided into Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors. I was in the Intermediates with my brother 10

    and the others were in the Juniors.

    There were two dormitories, Junior and Intermediates with a door in between. There were

    about 25-30 beds in each dormitory. 11

    The staff that I can remember at the time that I was there are: Mr TILBROOK, he was in

    charge of the whole place, he was known as the Head. I cannot say what the order of staff in seniority was as I cannot remember now, I can just remember that

    491

    the Juniors. I did not know first names of the

    the Intermediates and

    staff as we would always refer to them as Mr, Mrs or Miss or Sir etc. I cannot recall any other staff, it is only these three that stick in my mind. 12

    Mr TILBROOK sticks in my mind because he would enjoy giving you a good caning if you

    got into trouble, which I had quite a few. If you got caught for instance at night time messing about 491

    then

    would then tell you that you had to go and see Mr TILBROOK because you had

    been breaking the rules. This could be throwing stuff around the dormitory, being late back from school. We used to walk to school and you had to be back by a certain time, if you didn't get back by a certain time you would get the cane for that. I used to be in the church choir at Gorey, many of us would go to Choir just to get away from Haut De la Garenne. If you didn't get back on time from Choir you would get the cane for that. You would be told that you were what they called wicked in them days. Nine times out of ten you would get the cane from Mr TILBROOK. If say you were caught messing around at night and the other boy said that, no it wasn't him but you, that statied it then straight away and you would get the cane. This happened to me quite a few times. 13

    It was always Mr TILBROOK that gave me the cane, this would always be in his office and he

    would be alone. Sometimes you would be caned on your hands, sometimes on your backside. I was caned on both, it was not very nice and I was frightened. I was always caned over my clothing. You Signature:

    Page 4 of7 got always got six strokes of the cane that was for sure. He used a very thin cane like a walking stick to cane you and it was the same cane that was used for your hands as was used for your backside. I cannot recall if he ever said anything to me when I was caned. There would be other boys waiting outside to be caned and when one came out the next one would go in. 14

    This would happen to me say twice a month or once every two months, it didn't happen every

    day or every week, but it happened to me quite a few times whilst I was there. 15

    I have been asked if I thought that this caning was legitimate punishment. In them days you

    were just frightened, you didn't think if it was legitimate or not, you just thought 'oh God I am going to get the cane'. 16

    I never got on with

    491

    I do not think he liked me. I had problems with wetting the

    bed, this was not a problem that I had before going to Haut De la Garenne and the problem began almost straight away. I actually got paranoid, because what I used to do was when I wet the bed, he would march you down to the showers and you would have to have a cold shower. I was only 12 years old at the time and used to be really frightened of it. Half the time you would not sleep at night for worrying about it, and if you did, you would end up like I used to, putting the sheets the other way around, so that he wouldn't find it. But he used to find it. He made a habit. of once you had gone to school, he would go and check your bed. You would come home and see your bed stripped and think "oh no". You would go to school worrying about whether he would have found it when you got back. 17

    491

    used to love just coming up in the middle of the night, not just to me, but

    everyone, if you used to muck around between the Juniors and the Intermediates. He would love coming up twenty times a night to strip your beds and throw you out and think nothing of it. That happened to me quite a few times. He would come into the dormitory and start at one end and pull all the covers off the beds, whilst we were in our beds. He would then make you make your bed, you would get back in and then he would come back and do the same thing again, over and over again. He would come up at any time of night, 10 or 11 o'clock at night. But he would stop at a certain time, but I cannot remember what time exactly, but it was pretty late, bearing in mind that at our age, then we would go to bed at about 8 - 9pm. We would sometimes be asleep when this happened and get woken up. Signature:

    On a Saturday we would have cleaning duties, so you would have to clean the courtyard,

    hallways, and the rota would go round in a circle to Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors. For a week you would do it. To try and get out of it, you would throw stuff from one dormitory into the other and hopefully they would start throwing stuff back and you would get out of it. Then you would listen to see if anyone was coming up the stairs and you would get into bed quick and the others would still be throwing the stuff in, then they would get the blame and they would have to do the cleaning. You would be told to get back into bed and be quiet but then

    491

    would have to

    come up and stati. Like I said not just to me but to everybody in the dormitory. He would just pull the covers straight off whilst we were still in our beds. 19

    491

    If at anytime

    came upstairs and he found that I had wet the bed, then he would I

    say to me "Downstairs showers", and he would take me downstairs to have a shower. This would be a cold shower with no option of a warm shower. He would always stand there whilst you had a shower. There were no curtains or anything and he would stand right in front of you for the whole time whilst you were there. 20

    On the nights that we used to have our normal showers, he would always be there just standing

    there watching you. If he thought that you had not washed properly then he would make you go back and do it again, but he was always watching, the whole time that you were there. That was the way he used to do it, if that was his job I don't know. 21

    Whilst I was at Haut De La Garenne, I was not sexually or physically assaulted. If I had been, I

    would have 'punched their face in'. I am saying that now as an adult but I think looking back, that had anything like that happened to me then I would have stood up for myself. 22

    I did not ever see anyone else be physically assaulted or sexually assaulted and no ever said to

    me that they had been assaulted in any way. If it was going on then I never knew about it. I never saw anybody with any injuries, although I have to say that I cannot actually remember, as it was such a long long time ago. I have no knowledge of any detention rootns or cells. 23

    My brothers, whilst we were at Haut De La Garenne never said to me that they had ever been

    assaulted physically or sexually. I never saw them with any injuries.

    are: 172

    284 & 338

    I cannot recall any of the girls. I didn't really have any good friends, I was a loner. Even

    after I left Haut De la Garenne there was no one I actually went around with after. 25

    During my time at Haut De La Garenne, I was only ever in the Intermediate Group. I left Haut

    De La Garenne, when I was fostered by

    480 & 481

    Garenne and take us out. They used to live at

    They used to come to Haut De la at the time. When I was 14 and a half I '

    went to live with them, my brothers stayed in Haut De la Garenne. The 480 & 481 moved to and then they fostered the rest of my brothers that had been in Haut De la Garenne 26

    I actually left the

    480 & 481

    when I was 15 and a half and went to live in a boy's hostel. My

    brothers stayed with the 480 & 481 . I lived in the hostel until I was 18 years old and then I moved in to a flat and tben learnt my trade as a 480 & 481

    27

    were lovely. I am grateful to them for keeping us, especially my

    brothers and giving them a normal family life and they have all turned out well. I have to be grateful to them. However when my brothers called them mum and dad, I had a chip on my shoulder and that was one reason why I could not actually live with them. But I never had any problems with them and am not aware of any problems with my brothers. 28

    The schools that I attended as a child were StJames Primary School and St Martins School.

    29 Whilst at Haut De La Garenne, we got to know a

    regularly and he used to take us out for walks or down to the beach, he was always at Haut De La Garenne. To me he was such a nice bloke because we used to get out of Haut De La Garenne, because we were stuck there all the time. 30

    My view ofHaut De La Garenne, looking back personally, is that it did not do me any harm.

    The discipline, my children will tell you, I brought them up and disciplined them very strong and I have 32

    children who have never caused me any trouble whatsoever.

    f

    It was a sad place to be. It was sad that I had no family, when it comes to Christmas, birthdays,

    father's day, I do not like them, I cannot relate to anything like this. I put this down to Haut De La Garenne because we never had it. Christmas there would be to go down to the town hall and get an orange and an apple and that was Christmas. I suppose that in the 60s it was different what people expected to what they expect now. When we were at home and we had all our family there, we had a big party, Christmas trees and everything else. At Haut De La Garenne there was no such thing as Birthdays or that. 33

    It did change me, of course it changed me, but if somebody lost six of their family in one day

    could you be the same. It is very hard to engage with Haut De La Garenne, I do not think it helped me at all. It made me very determined, because I am a very determined person and I have built up my own business. 34

    At 1000 on 01/07/08 I handed to DC CAMERON photographs which were taken during my

    time at Haut De La Garenne. I can identify these photographs by the reference

    I have

    provided these photographs in order for the Police to make copies. I will retain the originals and will produce these if required at a later date.

There were other siblings who we did not look after but did meet periodically and not until a few years after our initial contact with the boys. 8. The boys for about 1-2 years prior to us fostering them had been living at the Haut de la Garenne. We initially made contact with them at Haut de la Garenne and took them out for days here and there in order for them to get to know us. 9. We were not particularly happy with the way the children were being treated there. Nothing

    particularly bad but just a lack of respect for the children including not allowing them out with us if they did not eat their meals.

    because he would not eat his meals. 10. In general the boys were well behaved and did not give us any problems. However, 341 was

We felt we could not cope with 341 anymore. We have slowly lost touch with him and his brothers have little to no contact with him. 11. At this time we also fostered a girl called old when she came to us.

    as about 2-3 years

    came from Westerway Creche.

    12. We also had two children of our own

    born 1960 and 1963 respectively.

    especially for us to look after our children and was effectively gave us

    . This

    . The house was given to us by the Children's Officer specifically for our

    fostering. This house has recently been featured on the television due to a family who moved in after we left being investigated for child abuse. 14. When we made initial contact with Haut de la Garenne in around 1963 and began making contact with the boys we had very little contact with members of staff. However, through the

    Children's Officer, Pat THORNTON we met the superintendent Colin TILBROOK. TILBROOK did not particularly like us as we were critical about the punishment methods including them not being allowed out with us because they hadn't eaten their meals. We were only allowed to see the boys dormitory on one occasion and we felt that we had to stick up for the boys.

    15. Pat THORNTON would also do anything for the children and we had a good relationship with her. She would invite ourselves and all our children around for tea. 16. About 2-3 months after we started looking after the

    boys a couple who were

    houseparents at Haut de la Garenne called us and visited us at our home. I do not recall meeting them before but they stated that they were leaving Jersey and wanted to see the boys prior to leaving. They were a married couple who had a surname o

    omething as their surname

    and had a strong accent.

    TILBROOK was also involved and they felt that they could not approach the home directly. 18. At this time we told them if they were concerned to contact the authorities. I did not believe what this couple were saying and had not heard any of the boys stating the same. The boys were the only children we fostered from Haut de la Garenne. 19. I have not heard any other accounts or rumours about Haut de la Garenne and although I believe the regime was quite strict have no evidence to say that anything else more sinister was happening there. 20. Over the years we have fostered hundreds of children as we went into emergency fostering which worked better for us. Even now we bump into children who have grown up and remember their time with us. 21. We still keep close contact with the died about two years ago after moving to

    was only in Haut de la Garenne for a short time

    due to her father having mental health problems. Her father was upset that she was in a children's home and as a result the home were keen to foster her externally for her own stability.

    with us until she was 18 years old. We still have regular contact with her on a daily basis. 24. The

    rothers all stayed with us until they were of an age when they met

    1. I am a fifty one year old male and I was born on

    956 in Jersey. My father was an

    alcoholic and my mother worked hard to look after us all. In my early childhood and my father couldn't cope looking after the rest of us. 2. We were first sent to live at BRIG-Y-DON childrens home and remained there for about six or seven months. When I was approximately seven years old we were sent to Haut de la Garenne. My

    233

    brothers

    were sent to the

    When we got to Haut de la Garenne we were all

    split up on arrival and I was taken straight to a dormitory by a member of staff called

    . It

    was a great big long room on the upper floor. I could see the fields from the dormitory windows and there was a big black fire escape at the back.

    hair. 493, 174

    3. People I can remember being there wer 338, 579 and 342

    .

    It was an all male dormitory and slept about ten to fifteen of us. 4. We had a strict regime every day, being up early every morning for a bath or a shower° If you got up to use the toilet during the night you would be hit by the

    as that wasn't

    allowed° They would often punch you in the face or a kick you. This happened to me from day one. I was only a child and I was frightened. My parents had never hit me and this was alien to me. I didn't know what was going on or why this was happening. This happened day in day out. The staff were the ones doing the assaulting. 5. In the kitchen there was a big machine for skinning potatoes. The drain would freeze up in winter and

    bleeding and

    491 491

    would make us dig the ice out with our bare hands. Often my hands would be

    would stamp on my hand forcing it into the drain. It would hurt and I would

    squeal but he wouldn't stop, he was a sadistic bastard.

    6. Whether summer or winter whenever it was dark we were sent to the dormitory to sleep. I

    would regularly wake up in the night and someone would be touching my private palÿs, or i would wake up with someone's genitals in my face° I know it was the

    boys, who were twelve to fourteen often had sex with her. These things would always take place in her room. I remember she was very fond o

    who who was well endowed. The

    younger boys used to watch it regularly. She would lift her skirt up and show you her private parts. I used to give

    ral sex when I was about seven or eight years old. She would take me in

    her room, open her legs and me to lick her private parts, therefore I would. I thought it was norma!, and was too young to realise what was going on. I didn't know that it was wrong. 9. I remember a lady called She was also in her mid

    lady. She was another one who was sexually

    assaulting the boys. I recall she used to stick candles into her vagina in front of the boys° 10. At that time the only people I did trust and who were 'nmÿal' were ok me to her mothers house and after I had a

    operation and was brave.

    her. She always wanted to adopt me, but wasn't allowed to. She told me that she couldn't do anything to stop what was happening as she would have been sacked or assaulted. 11. There was one lady who was really f

    but I can't remember her name. Rather than hit you

    with an open hand she would punch you hard. She would grab you by the testicles and squeeze hard. She was

    was crying.

    TILBROOK went mad, took hold of her and threw her down a full flight of stairs. She must have been about fourteen of fifteen at the time. The stairs were high and I saw her at the bottom and she wasn't moving. I never saw her again after that.

    who was pregnant when she was

    about fourteen years old. She wouldn't say who the father was but we knew it was a member of staff. One minute she was noticeably pregnant and then she disappeared. I asked where she went but they wouldn't tell me, they just said she had moved on, I remember her being really pretty with hair. 14. Girls were sexually assaulted all the time. We used to touch the gifts as well, as we came to think of it as being norma!, even at that age. We learned this behaviour from the staff and didn't realise it was wrong. It was a regular thing that girls were assaulted by male members of staff ha the showers and toilets.

    15. One incident I remember was being thrown into a boiling hot shower by TILBROOK. I couldn't reach the taps to make it colder and he held me in there. He held my face against the glass of the shower. As this was happening I remember seeing a girl curled up on the floor of the shower, naked. TILBROOK dragged me out of the shower by my face. When he had gone I made my way over to the girl and I picked her up. She was shaking like a leaf and saying 'it's him, he does it all the time', meaning TILBROOK. I still become upset and angry when thinldng about the things that

    TILBROOK put us through. 16.

I told THOMSON, head of Social Services that I had to get out of there but he wouldn't listen. He was childcare officer and he said that I was a liar and he didn't believe me. I told him everything that was happening. Amongst others t told Ian SMITH who was the head of Childrens Services at that time. He didn't want to know.

    26. Children often came and went from Haut de la Garenne. i remember a girl being there for about three months and !'m not sure if she got pregnant, but she disappeared, i knew the staff got rid of the babies, because I witnessed it. Not proper abortions, but something else. They would use a coat hanger and pull them out. I saw it happen at Hant de la Garenne in a basement room by the stairs near the kitchen. There was a long marble slab next to a sink with some type of washboard to the other side of it. I saw a girl sitting there who was about fifteen years old, bleeding profusely and screaming. I saw the baby covered in blood and it was alive, it was moving. I knew this was happening regularly as I saw it about four or five times during my time there. It was a f that was aborting these babies but I don't remember her name. She was old and she used to give us all cod liver oil and something black to swallow each day. She would have been in her forties or fifties. I never knew what happened to the babies after they were aborted.

    27. I remember boys going to see

    at Grouville School with problems with their

    penises because they had sores, and she would treat them. It was common knowledge and we all laughed about it at the time. Thinking about it now they must have been sexually transmitted diseases.

    28. As a result of so many beatings my

    is ruined. I am going to need surgery in the future. I

    have never had a normal relationship due to the fact of what happened to me. It is on my mind constantly and it has effected my relationships. I have taken it out on my partners and I regret that. 29° I have not spoken to the media at all in relation to this. I would not go to the press and would not give an interview if approached. 30. I am happy stand in court and give my evidence in front of people who offended against me and others in my childhood. I want just to be done and the truth to come out.

    Oh as I said, he was happy-go-lucky you know. but I always got the sort of impression, I don't know if I overheard it or what, but it seemed to me as though my Dad had had an affair with someone else, and 493

    Oh right OK
