Sep-25-12  Nosnibor: Is this the same player known as B.A.Jones who represented Sheffield and played in the British Championship at Chester in 1979 and scored 2.5 points from 11 games?

The one and the same. Brian emigrated to Australia in the mid-1980's.

Brian has closed down the Australian Chess Enterprises shop. The business will now be run out of his son-in-law's house as a mail order company, with visitors by appointment only. I am not sure if overheads or rents forced him to do this.
