Frank Checkland: The new man

January 25, 1919
Frank Checkland, who made his debut to-day, is one of the number of Old Xaverians who joined the Army right at the outset of the war. He was wounded, and returned home, and was very recently demobolised. He was a sergeant in the R.A.M.C., and his rise in his school football games was very rapid. Incidentally it can be mentioned that contemporaneous with Checkland was Captain W. Bruce, who has this week been granted D.F.C.
