Les Darcy's boxing gloves return to Maitland

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The boxing gloves that Maitland’s favourite son, Les Darcy, used to train every day almost a century ago will be returned to the city.
Maitland Regional Art Gallery officials won several pieces of Darcy memorabilia for the city, during an auction held in Sydney on Saturday.
MRAG cultural director Brigette Uren said the gloves, newspaper articles and an original signed postcard were among the items the gallery bought for the city’s Les Darcy collection.
