  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.
