  GrahamClayton: Charles Ambrose Scott Damant (5 August 1895-Nov 1984). Played for Hampstead in the London League, during the 1930's, winning the Hampstead Championship Trophy in 1931 and 1935.
Aug-05-17  Nosnibor: I believe we met in the Major Open 1965 on his 70th birthday when the game was drawn. A true gentleman and many times Hastings Club Champion.

English Chess Forum by John Saunders:

Charles Ambrose Scott Damant (born 5 Aug 1895, Romford, mar. Elizabeth Paine, Richmond, 1919, died Nov 1984, Hastings). Obit on p77, Feb 1985 BCM. "regular congress goer, charming man though deafness made communication difficult in his later years. Older readers will remember him as a strong London league player, who also played a lot of CC..." His wife predeceased him, at which time he was described as a 'retired bank official'.
