Cr J C Dillon

Mercantile Rowing Club (VIC)

Councillor J C Dillon was a long standing Vice-President of Mercantile Rowing Club before his death during the 1914-15 rowing season.

The obituary in the Club's annual report records:

"We greatly regret to have to report the death of one of our Vice-Presidents, Councillor J C Dillon, who had been associated with the Club in that capacity for a great many years. For many seasons Councillor Dillon had presented trophies for a Club Eight-oared Race, which was known as the "Dillon" Eight, and he was a frequent visitor to the Boathouse."
