Hey JR,
I very much appreciate you sharing this, both here and on your http://www.nccheckers.org web site.

Many Thanks to Mr. Reekie for all the effort he has put into discovering the true date of Wyllie's death and sharing the history of this great draughts player with us.

Does anyone know why Wyllie's name is spelled with only one L on his grave?

Sorry about not getting back and reposting these articles. I got permission for Magazine Co editors, author, and their ok to print pictures and these articles on ACF and NCCA website. Someone questioned it, so I did it right and got their OK.

These articles were also published in the English Draughts Journal.

I can easily send copies to anyone who is interested.
