South Melbourne Senior Team 1940 R3 (DG_058)

Damien Green Collection

Team: South Melbourne (VFL)
Location: Windy Hill (Essendon)
Date: 1940

Middle Row: Keith Smith, Reg Richards, Norm Matthews, Herbie Matthews, Jock McKenzie, George Bates

Further Work Needed

Initial confusion existed because Jack Hacker was initially identified as Vic Castles who started in 1942. A correct identification, and a complete player listing from the scrapbook of Ron Reiffel clearly identify the game.

This photo appears in the Sydney Swans Collection with the date 1944 included on the photo. This date, possibly reproduced elsewhere, is incorrect.
