Further Work Needed

Coach Percy Wilson should be found in this photo.

Bill Kuhlken played 1927-30 - 35 Games. Maybe the photo is earlier than 1932

Tommy Lahiff played many games in the 1932 season but he is not in the photo.

Front row, third left - possibly Ern Hart, a Northcote player in the thirties.

Back row, fifth from left (to right of Ted Hyde) - very probably Jack Buckley

Jack Buckley

A Jack Buckley played for Port Melbourne in 1932, and the face here matches Jack Buckley in a 1929 Fitzroy (VFL) team photo.
A similar-looking Jack Buckley was Fitzroy (VFL) Secretary in 1952.

Player front row far left resembles L. Keating from 1933 Hoadleys football card.
