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.
