Photo submitted by Sam, 2019, showing a comparison of Albert William Tubbs (1914-1941, RGS 1925-1929) in 1932 as a member of the No. 2 Wing Senior Boxing Team, RAF Halton, 1932, and a cut-out from the RGS photo in 1929. It's a very convincing likeness of the 1929 photo but much less so the 1926 photo above.
