Dave Clark (Bury St Edmunds) has unearthed the photo above. It shows four members of the Bury B.R.S team. The initials are believed to represent ‘British Road Services’; such a team played in the very early days of the Bury Area Chess League, which was founded in about 1979/80.
On the reverse of the photo (see below) are the names, together with some historical information dated 1930. If these gentlemen were playing chess in both 1930 and 1980, they must all have been in their 70s or 80s by the time the photo was taken. So all will have passed away now. Does anyone have more information about any of these?
