  • I remember seeing a great fight between Bernie Trangmar and Terry Tulley at The Crown and Anchor, when the M.C. my dad, Henry (Dapper) Thwaites gave the wrong result and the two boxers had to be called back from the dressing room to the ring, for my very embarrassed dad to correct his mistake.

  • I still think I won that fight – your dad was right the first time.

  • Just been sent the link to this page. Connecting with this as my dad was Thomas Henry (Dapper) Thwaites. He was an amateur light weight boxing champion in the 1930s having been introduced to a local club by his uncle. I’d be very interested to know the family connections.
