The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 3, Issue 1 (May 1, 1928)
For the Olympic Games
The appeal made throughout the service for contributions towards the expenses of Mr. A. J. Cleverley's participation in the boxing contests at the Olympic Games was liberally supported.
Mr. Cleverley sailed with the New Zealand team for Amsterdam on 28th April—a consummation brought about largely through the generosity of his fellow employees. The Olympic Association of New Zealand has written expressing appreciation of the practical support given to the above appeal by the railwaymen of New Zealand, and this Magazine desires to thank all who have assisted in bringing the effort to such a successful issue.
