South African born Gerald Anderson (1898 - 1983) had a long and eventful life. A decorated pilot in the First World War, he had a distinguished career in the British Foreign Office, serving in embassies in many countries. While stationed in Lisbon in 1946 he was the opponent in the last known game played by Alexander Alekhine. A versatile composer, Anderson was particularly known for highly strategic three-movers, and formed a famous partnership with the American composer Vincent Eaton. This problem shows Anderson in lighter mood.
