  1. Sean, when you describe him as in “fighting form” I thought that he must be a boxer.
    But this man was an athlete, probably a sprinter judging by the spikes in his running shoes.

    • In the 1930s local men could earn good money winning sprinting races.
      My father was asked to run, but he refused when he found out that some of the races were fixed and he was expected to run to orders.
