by Royal Air Force Officers and Airmen of the R.A.F. Boxing Association
(by permission of the Air Council)
The R.A.F. Boxing Association, founded in 1910, is extremely popular amongst all ranks. It organises various competitions each season, individual championships being fought out during the winter and spring. The winners retain their titles, which are the highest boxing honours of the R.A.F., for one year. These title-holders meet the boxing champions of the Royal Navy, the Marines, and the Army in what are known as the Imperial Services Championships, but perhaps the most popular tournament in the Air Force is the annual competition for trophies given by Lord Wakefield, a tournament reserved for novices.
This afternoon there will be two demonstration bouts, and the contestants are Pilot Officer W.G. Moseby, Acting Pilot Officer C.B. Hull, Sergeant Pilot J.D. Varley, and Aircraftman R. Boxshall.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
