George Hele - named after George Giffen - was a club-standard wicketkeeper who umpired 16 Tests between 1928 and 1933, ten of them between England and Australia. He stood in all five Tests in the 1932-33 Bodyline series, subsequently expressing his disapproval of the leg-theory tactics employed by some of the English fast bowlers. Himself one of the best umpires produced by Australia, his father, Andy, was also a first-class umpire, as was his son, Ray.
