  • Description

    Item title reads - Good sportsmen for a good cause. Exhilarating bout between Lieutenant Commander Newcombe and Major Leahy - navy and army champions - who both lost a leg in the war. In aid of "save the Victory fund." London.

    M/S as one man moves to the centre of the boxing ring and the two start sparring, they both have an artificial leg. Various shots as they move round the ring and fight, they go back to their corners and someone holds up a card saying 'Round 4.'
