Walter Bain - Invercargill FC

Post by Bristol Rovers » Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:40 pm

alter George Stewart Bain, brother of John Bain (1854-1929, a Scotsman who played once for England) was born on 19th May 1866. He apparently played for Invercargill FC in the 1890s. Does anyone on here know anything about Walter Bain's time at Invercargill or anything else about his life? When did he die? Much appreciated.

He died 5 December 1896 at Johannesburg, of typhoid. No idea whether he went to New Zealand before then, though.

You can try browsing the NZ Papers Past site: https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newsp ... 00624.2.16
