1947 radio matches
Compiled by gauer
--*--

under construction - Thanks also to the help of the Biographer Bistro in being able to clear up some of the date, board and table pairings of the Russia vs UK match.

Looks like (perhaps a series of 1 or more) international event(s) played across the medium of the radio broadcast waves.

Probably the UK vs Russia matches were played between September 21st-23rd, 1947.
