Shipmates With Local Children 1944

About this memory

Bunny Glover (left) and Taffy Evans (right).

“Bunny Glover and I were shipmates in the same hut, we were amateur boxers, and at HMS Rajaliya a boxing ring had been erected in the centre of the camp, and a boxing match had been arranged. Bunny and I – being the same weight – fought each other. I gained a points decision but didn’t enjoy fighting my shipmate.” – John Maley
