Further Work Needed

Official identified in 122_064 - South Melbourne Football Club Trainers and Staff 1954. R. Campbell is wearing the same double collar in both photos.

Kevin Hillet played for Yarrawonga in 1955.

In April 1955, "A clearance to Yarrawonga has been granted half-forward Kevin Hilet, one of last season's firsts, for family reasons."

Hilet played for Yarrawonga 1955-56

Because the official is wearing the same outfit and Hilet was in Yarrawonga in 1955, This photo is more likely to be 1954 than Original identification as circa 1955.
