The man who owned this jumper was Gilbert Henry Johnstone, a locomotive driver and later, an inspector at Mayne Locomotive Depot. Johnstone was involved with the Mayne Locomotive Cricket Club and Queensland Railway Institute cricket and rugby league teams. He was also involved in the Mayne Social Club. It is likely that given his experience in workplace sporting teams, Gilbert Johnstone became the Secretary and Treasurer for the Commercial Rugby League Competitions in the early 1960s and was given this jumper.
