World War 2 Problems

The Reserves this year is an eight team competition consisting of Carlton, Essendon, Fitzroy, Footscray, Melbourne, Richmond, South Melbourne, and North Melbourne.
Geelong, because of war time travel restrictions went into recession and did not compete in the Seniors or Reserves this year.
Due to man-power shortages, Collingwood, Hawthorn, and Richmond maintained a Senior team, but did not compete in the 1942 Reserves competition.

Due to wartime requirements South Melbourne's home ground the Lake Oval was unavailable, and South's seniors played home games at Princes Park. It seems that Carlton Reserves played their home games at McAlister Oval which is off Park Street, Parkville. The oval is still there, its a good drop kick north-west from Princes Park on the other other side of the Brunswick railway line, west of Sydney Road.
