John
I have a 45/6 handbook which shows 279 linesmen, of whom by my reckoning and according to Upton's, 44 made it to the middle, but 18 of that 44 never got past the supplementary list.
That is on the assumption that the N C Taylor who appears on the linesmens' list as living in Leeds is the same man who was living in Trowbridge and then Westbury when on the referees' list . If not, for 44 read 43.
I don't have a prewar handbook so I can't say how many of the 279 were newly appointed-I imagine a lot after a gap of 6 years.
