  whiteshark: When has he decided to retire from chess?
Mar-30-14  zanzibar: MillBase has a single game of his (presumably, only last name is given) from Margate ENG 1938 (Dewing vs. Illingworth, L).

Might be nice to submit it since it was a win for him.

(Him - I'm assuming given the middle name. Leslie itself is a name of Scottish origin, from a location, that can be both male and female. I believe Les is a shortened version of it).

PS- ICOfY has a Dewing game from 1945, another loss. Unfortunately ICOfY strips out location information. Ahh, Hyatt's Enormous has it, and gives it as London.
