  Chessical: Victor Wahltuch (24.05.1875-27.08.1953) from Manchester (UK) was a minor British master.

As an amateur player, he only occasionally played in international tournaments, and those were held in England (Hastings 1919, London 1922 - he defeated Reti Reti vs Wahltuch, 1922, Scarborough 1929).

He represented England at Prague 1931 Olympiad, and played a match against Yates in 1921.

  wwall: Yorkshire Chess History page says his middle name was Lionel, not Leonard.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: The 1911 census (referred to in Yorkshire Chess History) has "Victor Leonard". Same in a Freemason membership register 1909. Birth index also Victor Leonard, b. in Chorlton Lancashire. Family trees: he married Alice Maud Howorth (b. 1889, d. 1978 in Australia) in 1915 and had at least one daughter, Margareth b. 1916.

My Mum was from Chorlton, so Victor Leonard Wahltuch and I have two things in common.
