The Police of Great Britain v.
The Combined Services
A commentary on some of the fights by Dan Titchener from
Harringay Arena Here is a chance for those who either respect or fear the guardians nf law and order to see how the police constable fares when he really gets going with the gloves on. This is the thirteenth contest between the Police and the Combined Services, and so far the Bobbies have been unbeaten. They will put a formidable array of constabular flesh into the ring. Their team will include W. Gallagher of the Ulster Constabulary, formerly Irish and Scottish Welterweight Champion, and J. Mc. Mullen, the present Irish Heavyweight Champion. The Services, it is expected, will feel the loss of the four Air Force boxers who were killed in an air crash in Northern Rhodesia in April this year. Dan Titchener , who will give the commentary, will be remembered for past broadcasts in which he has given commentaries on various London matches. He is closely associated with arhateur boxing as a trainer and referee.
