Lochee narrator Andy Walker was clearing out some of his archives, which, unfortunately, were severely damaged by time and damp.
Given recent BwB tales of the old Premierland boxing venue in Dundee, Andy now shares these boxing bouts from 1932.
Boxing fans of an age may reconise some of these pugilists.
