Comment

Seven Hawthorn (VFL) footballers.

Evidence suggests these players, apart from Albiston, are actually a group of new Hawthorn recruits for the 1938 season.

The five players identified are Alec Albiston (second from left in top row, 170 senior games 1936-49 and captain-coach of Hawthorn 1947-49); Andy Angwin (third from left in top row, 75 senior games 1938-44, wingman from Port Melbourne); Allan Hird (fourth from left in top row, 14 senior games 1938-39, later 102 senior games for Essendon, and later President of Essendon Football Club); William Robinson (second from right in top row, 6 senior games 1938-39); William Moore (extreme right top row, 31 senior games 1938-41). Angwin, Hird, Moore and Robinson (and probably the two unidentified players) all started at Hawthorn in 1938. All seven players are present in the Hawthorn Seconds team (circa 1938) seen in Photo 17 version 9 (H2008.122/240) and Photo 10 version 14 (H2008.122/96). These two photos are more or less identical (although 17/9 has significant emulsion damage). This would suggest Photo 75 was taken on the same day and in the same session as the photos of the Hawthorn Seconds team.

Further Work Needed

Alan Hird is Grandfather of James Hird and looks just like him
