A lower-order batsman and wicketkeeper, Stan Sismey's first-class career spanned World War Two. He made his debut for New South Wales in 1938-39, playing eight times before the war. He served as a pilot, being shot in the side and forced down by German fighters in the Mediterranean Sea, being rescued unconscious after eight hours in the sea. He spent the remainder of the war as a test pilot in Scotland, joking there was so much shrapnel in his back the compasses of the aircraft he flew were affected.
