May-28-14  Fiona Macleod: A German soldier who died in 1915 on the Eastern Front?

He must have been old at that time.

His earliest game here was in 1864. Assuming he was just, say, 10 years old when the game was played, in 1915 he would have been 61 years old already.

  WannaBe: Good thing we made it clear that Russia was the Eastern Front, to the Russians, it was the Western Front. :-)
