  GrahamClayton: "The [Queensland] State championship has been won by C. L. R. Boyce. Mr. Boyce is a strong attacking player, who is apt to produce brilliant games. lt may be remembered that he won the prize for the best game in his tournament at the Victory Congress at the close of the war. He there further distinguished himself as the only competitor who conducted operations in military uniform."

Sunday Times, Sunday 21 March 1926, page 9S.

  Chessical: DEATH OF MR. C. L. R. BOYCE
The death has occurred of Cecil Leonard Rodney Boyce, at the age of 59. Mr. Boyce, who served with the 5th Light Horse during the last war, was the fifth son of the late J. A. Boyce, Police Magistrate.

The deceased was a noted pianist and composer, and his songs, 'Coo-ee' and 'To the Front,' went with our troops to Egypt with him.

He was also one of Australia's leading chess players and won the Queensland championship on several occasions. When demobilised in England after the war he competed in the big Hastings chess tournament of 1919, and, although he was unplaced in the championship event he won the coveted Brilliancy Prize, a trophy for the most brilliant single game in the whole tournament. He leaves a widow and a daughter, Wendy Boyce, of Arthur Street, Teneriffe.

"The Telegraph" (Brisbane), Saturday 23 August 1941, p.2
