Stanley Vs Randolf Turpin

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by KRHussar, Aug 6, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In 1951 Tpr Stanley (11th Hussars) fought Randolf Turpin, the boxing champion back in 1951. Trooper Stanley is 80 tomorrow, 7th August 2007 and we are trying to find a picture / program or anything else to do with the fight so we can give it to him, belatedly, for his birthday.

    Can anybody PLEASE help with any such articles??


    Thank you
