From: Sandy Bay
22-year-old rover who was signed by Melbourne in 1954 after transferring from Tasmania to Puckapunyal on army duties but didn't play a game. The VFL initially cleared him by accident to Mildura Imperials, despite him not applying to join them.
He wore number 27 that year, and captained an Army services team against an Air Force side led by Geoff Collins in June.
Sandringham beat Box Hill for McMahon's signature in 1955, and got 27 games over two years out of him before he was transferred back to Hobart on army duties.
Also shown as a half-forward and a centreman.
