   Jun-22-22 Herbert Lieske
John Saunders: From CHESS, May 1950, page 165 "P.C.C. PERSONALITIES (No. 13) H. P. LIESKE To become Champion of the Postal Chess Club is no mean feat. To score eleven wins out of twelve games in doing so, is truly remarkable. Who is this new star in British postal chess ? Mr. Lieske was ...
   Jun-07-22 A R Thomas vs P J Waters, 1968
John Saunders: As of today's date this game is misattributed to Ronald Thomas and R J Waters. In fact White was Andrew Rowland Benedick Thomas and Black was Peter J Waters. The game was played in round 3 of the West of England Championship (Penzance) on 13 April 1968 and published in BCM, ...
   Jun-07-22 A J Morley vs R Thomas, 1977 (replies)
John Saunders: The explanation for the 1-0 result despite White being clearly losing in the final position is that Black sealed his 41st move but found out later he had placed the carbon paper in upside down and thus his move was not recorded. He was awarded a loss. Source: ...

   Jun-05-22 Alfred Eva
John Saunders: Alfred Eva (born 24.08.1882, Bristol, died 21.02.1974, Manchester), if is to be believed (I see no reason not to). Unlike his older brother Arthur (q.v.) he didn't get an obit in BCM.

   Apr-08-22 J Penrose vs W E Baker Pryer, 1952
John Saunders: This game was played no later than April 1952. It can be found in the Staffordshire Advertiser for Friday 11 April 1952, page 4, where the header text reads "A curious brevity played at second board in a recent county match between Essex and Herts. White, J. Penrose Black W. ...
   Mar-28-22 R Walter Moberly
John Saunders: His full name is Robert Walter Lambert Moberly. His grandfather Robert Hamilton Moberly (1884-1978) was the Bishop of Stepney (1936-52) and his great-great-grandfather George Moberly (1803-85) was the Bishop of Salisbury (1869-85). What you might call the advantage of the two ...
