Oh yes, they were very proud of Ingemar Johansson, and also the fact they beat England at football around 1959, never heard the end of that all the 27 years I lived there. unionflag

I met Ingemar Johansson sister a couple of times, she was married to a Judo friend of mine called Walter Pielage, he was Dutch but lived in Sweden.

Seem to remember being around Victoria Station when the news came through that Johansson had knocked out Patterson.

So I told them that England won the World championship in ice hockey 1936.... didn't go down too well. :jumping:

Freddie Mills annual with autograph, presented to me after boxing tournament for Grundy School of Boxing Radford.

Mills was found dead in his car in 1965, a bullet hole in his head and a shotgun between his legs. Officially recorded suicide although many people think the Krays were involved.

I remember mam telling me after a visit to London sometime in the 1960s, I think, that she was sitting in the Battersea Pleasure Gardens, where she saw and spoke to Freddie Mills. So carni, on Wednesday, if you sit next my wife you can say that you sat next to a woman whose husband's mother spoke to Freddie Mills.
