As youngsters both Ronnie and Reggie were keen boxers. In 1948 Reg was the schoolboy champion, and then the 1949 South East Divisional Youth Club Champion and ATC winner. Both brothers turned professional but their careers were halted when called up into the Army.
Aged 20 years after being dishonourably discharged from the army the Kray twins took over a billiard hall and started their careers of "security" and extortion. Ronnie's paranoid schizophrenia made him a very violent criminal who went on to murder. Bisexual and certified insane Ronnie was jailed for a minimum of 30 years in 1969 and died in Broadmoor prison aged 61.
