An inside view on life while preparing for the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race, by Cambridge Cox Matthew Holland.

Pinned to the board in the changing room of Cambridge University’s Goldie Boathouse is a small wooden cross with a poppy fixed in the middle, a small memorial to the 21 Cambridge blues who lost their lives in the World Wars.
