Leslie was a strongly-built, athletic follower. A fine all-round sportsman, he was born and bred in Richmond. His two senior games for Richmond were in Rounds 16 and 17 of 1913 against Melbourne and University. After his brief stint at Richmond he returned to a local club before spending 1915 with Williamstown. He served in the A.I.F during the First World War and played in the famous Services’ Football Match, in London, where he was named amongst the best players. Years later Dan Minogue had this to say about Lee’s performance. “The hero of the game was an unknown player, Lee of Richmond. I believe that had he survived the war, Richmond would have had a magnificent player, another Jack Dyer, in young Lee”. Leslie was killed shortly after this game in France, whilst on active service.
