Ernie Wall with his collection in 2009



Ernie Wall OBE

Ernie Wall's career in hockey spans for more than 70 years.

He has been an outstanding administrator at national and international levels and has travelled the world officiating at hockey tournaments.

Ernie, a former international umpire, was on the International Rules Board for 30 years. 

He has been involved in a number of Olympic Games as a technical official and has a keen interest in the history of hockey.

It follows that collecting hockey stamps became his hobby many years ago.

In 2011, Ernie donated his collection to the European Hockey Federation (EHF). 

The collection, which is at EHF offices in Brussels,  can be seen by appointment through the EHF offices.
