In my very early years family holidays nearly always involved staying with relatives, in Cardiff to visit my father's family or to Somerset to visit my mother's. But in the mid-1960s, we spent a week in a holiday camp in Cornwall. Until I decided on writing this memoir the exact year was lost in the mists of time, but a quick search on google soon told me that the year was 1965.

John Ling, veteran British problemist, died on 13th February 2023. He was 95 years old, and was, until his death, quite likely the oldest living chess problemist in the United Kingdom.
