This is a Geelong (VFL) Second Eighteen, apparently photographed at Punt Road Oval (Richmond). Circa 1941.

The captain of the side is W.H. ‘Bob’ Walker, the fourth player from the left in the middle row. Walker played 200 games for Geelong at Reserves level but only 14 games at senior level (1933-36, 38-39). Walker is also at the centre of the Geelong 1937 Seconds team seen in 122_184 - Geelong Seconds 1937.

Vic Nankervis (who played senior games for Geelong 1941, 1944-45) is second from right in middle row. Player at extreme right of top row, Jack Walker, is also seen (second from right in top row of players) in 122_184 - Geelong Seconds 1937.

Black shorts. Few in crowd. Clear photo. Emulsion damage down right-hand side but no players obscured.
