South African Strauss was a dashing left-winger who was spotted by the Dons shortly after his arrival to Britain. Played a major part in the Dons run to the Scottish Cup Final in 1937, and was injured in the semi-final, which meant he missed out on the big day. It was a popular belief that if Strauss were in the Dons 1937 Cup Final line up the Dons would have won. During the War, Bily reached the rank of Lieutenant in the Army.
Transferred from Aberdeen to Plymouth Argyle in early 1946. He also played Minor Counties cricket for Devon in the early 1950's.

Full name: William Henry Strauss. Died - Plymouth, 16th November 1984
