Frank appears in a image of the Carlton team that played an Army Camp Team a week after the Grand Final on September 25.
The match was organized to raise funds for wounded soldiers. The loser of the grand Final was to provide jumpers and trainers for the Army team.
If someone can identify Frank from this image, it would be appreciated.
He was named in the back pocket and scored a goal in Carlton's 20 point victory. He would have most likely been a ruckman or follower as the second ruck man was generally rested in the back pocket.
