Aldershot’s Gale Barracks, the home of 27 Regiment RLC, played host to the 2019 RLC Boxing Championships.
24 fighters had won through the preliminary knockout tournaments to face each other in the final.
In the presence of the Master General of Logistics, Lt Gen Sir Mark Poffley KCB OBE, Commander Regional Command, Maj Gen Duncan Capps CBE and numerous honoured guests, the Corps witnessed an excellent night of sportsmanship and courage as The RLC’s best novice amateur boxers took to the ring.
Streamed live on Facebook, the event attracted over 12,000 viewers.
CO 27 Regt, Lt Col John West and his team, are congratulated for hosting a superb night of boxing and hospitality.
All the boxers displayed high levels of skill and determination and their outstanding performances, bode well for the future success of The RLC boxing team.
Possibly unique in Army boxing, was the sixth bout of the night. A totally all female affair, with female boxers, a female referee, watched over by the female master of ceremonies, WO1 (RSM) Eagle, the RSM 27 Regt.
