  • Description

    Slate reading 'London airport ? Britain's golden boxers come home'. Nice close up of British boxers Terry Spinks and Richard McTaggart coming down aeroplane steps and smiling, with McTaggart also holding his trophy for 'Best Boxing Style'. Close up of 'Olympic Games 1956 ? Great Britain' logo on blazer pocket. Nice of Terry being greeted by his mother and father, as the press watch on. McTaggart and Spinks sitting on seats, with crowds of people behind them. Close up boxer, possibly Thomas Nicholls, then nice close up of McTaggart and Spinks. Nice close up Spinks showing his gold medal to his mum, then tight of his medal.
