Army Boxing Tournament R.F.A.

This Saturday afternoon an interesting boxing tournament took place on the Luton F.C. ground, when a military boxing tournament was organised by the Number 6 Reserve Brigade Royal Field Artillery (R.F.A.) in aid of local charities. Although the sky was rather clouded, the weather throughout was excellent, and resulted in a good attendance of those interested in the noble art.

The ring was arranged in the centre of the ground, and a good number of officers occupied the nearer seats. Wounded soldiers were also accommodated.
