Background: A highly distinguished gathering in London Nov 21. A dinner was held in honour of a famous boxer of the twenties, Georges Carpentier, at the National Sporting Club.
Not all the guests were sportsmen - one of them was Field Marshal Lord Auchinleck.
Next, two famous boxers: Kid Berg - in the centre - Jimmy Wilde on the left; then Len Harvey, a former British heavyweight champion, followed by Jack Petersen who held the title after Harvey.
A fighter in a different field: Group Captain Douglas Bader. Our reporter was there on business - he interviewed Carpentier and Bombadier Wells.
