...the Boxing Club was attached  to the side of the old Welfare, and many a Sunday morning saw the men watching the training before the club opened at 12 o'clock. I have named those I can remember, can you please help with the rest.

The man on the bottom row, left hand side is not T. Mills as stated, but

Roy Crofts. He used to box there from age of 16 to 21 and then continued to train others at the Welfare. Would be around 1946/47 when he used to box there. His son Paul used to go with him to watch in the early 1960'so
