ROY Jarvis (27) of Mun­dub­bera, died in Mun­dub­bera Hos­pi­tal at 10pm on Sun­day, Septem­ber 1947 as a re­sult of a fall dur­ing a rugby league game that same day. An eye­wit­ness said that Jarvis was play­ing full back in a fairly rough game be­tween Mun­dub­bera and Eidsvold when about half way through the sec­ond half, he fell with an­other player af­ter a tackle. The other player seemed to be knocked half un­con­scious, but he re­cov­ered quickly. Jarvis how­ever re­mained in­ert. He was con­veyed to hos­pi­tal where he died of con­cus­sion with­out re­gain­ing con­scious­ness. Jarvis who saw Army ser­vice dur­ing the war was well-known in Mun­dub­bera, hav­ing lived there most of his life.
