Biography

Arthur Hind played one game at the 1932 Olympics as the second goalkeeper for the Indian team. Since he refused to wear a turban at the Opening Ceremony, which was part of the official clothing, he was to be sent home immediately, but after an apology, he was allowed to participate. He worked for North Western Railway, but later emigrated to Australia, living in the state of Victoria, and he played hockey there up to his 50s.
