His pre war record was 18 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses.Wins were recorded against H.E.Price,J.A.J.Drewitt(2), R. Blow (2),P. A.Ursell and draws against H.E.Price,T.H.Tyler and B.H.Wood.His father A.A.Bumpus defeated Emmanuel Lasker in a simul on the 10th March 1908 in Leicester where Lasker played over 20 boards.Both he and his father were strong amateur players.

  MissScarlett: Thanks. Whyld's record of this particular tour is rather sketchy; doesn't even list this simul. Have submitted another of Lasker's losses from it, vs. Draycote, found in the <Hampshire Telegraph>.

  Tabanus: Leicester Mercury is not in https://www.britishnewspaperarchive...
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: I think it's clear he meant the <Leicester Daily Mercury>, of which the <BNA> has limited coverage - 1908 is excluded.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Yes, I overlooked Leicester <Daily> Mercury. It says available years 1875-1877, 1879, 1889-1890, 1898, 1911, 1939, 1950.
