Hi Pam,
A great friend of mine and one of the greatest police boxer's was Johnny Banham. John represented this country in the Olympics and was also a champion swimmer and fencer. I was re-reading an article about him last night and it stated that he started his boxing career when he was a police cadet at East Ham. His trainer was ,(you've guessed it) Arthur Craddock.

regards

Bill
