  MissScarlett: BCM, December 1916, p.401:

<It is with much regret that we record the death, through wounds received in the fighting-line in France, of Michael Glover Atkins, of the City of London Chess Club. Mr. Atkins joined that club in 1904, and for some years past served on the Committee. In 1912 he won the Mocatta Cup and was susequently admitted to the first class. In the championship tournament during the winter season, 1915-6, he tied for the 5th and 6th places with R. H. V. Scott, both scoring 5 points out of 10. He was a tenacious player, liable to draw against the strongest opponents, and at one time had a claim to the title of the club's "drawing master." Nevertheless, he was an admirable opponent and helped to produce many interesting games. He was one of those who defeated Capablanca at his simultaneous exhibition at the City club, on October 13th, 1913.

It adds to the honour of Mr. Atkin's death that, though a little over the military age, he volunteered for military service, and it was as a private in the West Kents that he met his end.>

Online sources give his dates as: born, c.1875 (in France) - died, October 09, 1916 (aged 41).
