Some sad news from Colin Ramage
Chris White has recently died, aged 74. Chris was a regular player for many years for Barking in the Essex League and Woodbridge in the London League, having started playing at the Ilford Club in his school days. He was a strong player at his best, reaching a grade of 170 on the old system.
In recent years he had been living in Clacton. He worked as a Post Office clerk and, apart from chess, he was a skilled bass guitarist.
Our condolences to his wife Lorraine and family.
