Anyone remember bouts?

Alfred Warner was one of several readers who spotted an inaccuracy in the caption to this recent picture of Queen Street, Portsea, in 1962.

Of course, it shows the entrance to Bishop Street, not Curzon Howe Road.

However, it stirred memories for Alfred, of The Redan, Gosport, who says: ‘Almost 89 years ago I was born at 8 Bishop Street.

‘The house stood next door to a large storage building the other side of which were steps that led down to the Dell.

‘If I remember rightly there was a boxing ring within this building which was used on Saturday evenings.’

Anyone else remember the bouts there?
