  Stonehenge: Related to Richard Edward Boxall?


Jan-15-15  Nosnibor: <Stonehenge> R.F.Boxall came from Kent and maybe the elder brother of R.E.Boxall.He was born in 1922 and the bio should credit him with some decent results. In 1948 he won the Battle of Britain Tourney and in 1951 qualified to play in 1952 British Championship by winning the Major Open held in Swansea.In the Third Stevenson Memorial Tournament,April 1951 he finished 7th Equal on 6.5/10 with Barden and Horne.In round 8 he won in 14 moves with a variant of the Monticelli trap.( Source British Chess Magazine 1951.)
Jan-15-15  Nosnibor: It should also be mentioned that in the 1952 British Championship he shared second place!

  MissScarlett: <And just who might you be?

I'm Ronnie Boxall, that's who I am.

Not the band leader!?>

Mar-09-19  offramp: <MissScarlett> I think I played him in Vauxhall. He was not as belligerent as the Ronnie Boxall in that <Good Life> episode, nor like this Ronnie:
I am afraid that these Three Ronnies would make a poor but watchable television show.
Mar-12-19  Nosnibor: It would appear that after 1953 he played little chess but I noted that he competed at the Applebly Frodingham Congress in May 1962 where he finished third in the Major section with 3/5.I have a record of one game that he won.
