Comment

Cannot positively identify at this stage. Same grandstand (Brunswick Street Oval, Fitzroy) as in 122_124. A war-time Services team. Number of military personnel (Army and Air Force) and slouch hats in the crowd. Several airmen between boundary line and fence. Three of the players have black shorts; the rest have white. The RAAF team in Photo 8 also has dark jumper with white ‘V’ (albeit thicker than the ‘V’ here). The player third from right in back row seems to be also in 122_151(third from right in back row). Good clear photo.


Further Work Needed

Lasky was Leading Airman RAAF so likely RAAF team though I cannot find a mention on trove

Unlikely...but a longshot, Jack Walker (Front Row Second from left)
