A researcher has suggested that this is Harold Oliver (full name, William Harold Oliver), born on 12 August 1891 to James Oliver and Sarah (nee Mill) at Waukaringa, SA.

Oliver was renowned for his high marking, as well as his speed, exceptional ball handling skills and versatility. During World War I, Oliver returned to Berri to maintain his farm, before returning to league football in 1919, serving as club captain during the 1921 season and leading the club to victory in the SAFL premiership. Oliver played a total of 117 games with Port Adelaide from 1910 to 1922, kicking 89 goals. He retired in 1922 to his farm in Berri. Oliver married Myrtle Blanche Downer in 1913, and had three children: Beryl Ivy Oliver (b.1914), James Harold Oliver (b.1917), and Joyce Mary Oliver (b.1923). Oliver died in Adelaide on 15 November 1958. [Information from Australian Football website, Players page for Harold Oliver].
