EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of camaraderie and determination within the Truro Cathedral School boxing team. Taken on a chilly winter day in 1925, these six young boys proudly represent their school as semi-finalists in the South of England zone. Despite their valiant efforts, they were defeated by Middlesex at Chelsea Barracks, but their spirits remain unbroken. In this historic snapshot, we see the team standing tall with an air of confidence that only comes from countless hours of training and dedication to their craft. Positioned at the center is an officer, perhaps a mentor or coach, exuding authority and guidance. Flanking him are two more officers who stand as pillars of support for these aspiring pugilists. The composition evokes a sense of nostalgia as it transports us back to a time when boxing was not just about physical prowess but also about instilling discipline and character development in young men. The image is beautifully captured by Arthur William Jordan, whose keen eye for detail brings out every nuance in this timeless moment. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, we can't help but admire these brave youngsters who dared to step into the ring against formidable opponents. Their story serves as a testament to resilience and sportsmanship that transcends generations - reminding us all that victory lies not only in winning matches but also in embracing challenges with unwavering determination.
