Given the paucity of entertainment which appears to be emerging from the world championship match in Chennai (an overdose of "Chicken Madras", as former Chess editor John Saunders characterised it!), I thought it might be a good time to set something a bit more challenging than usual. So we have a great moremover by a legendary British composer, the late Norman Macleod. There is an obvious battery on the long white diagonal, but how to get the WK out of the way?

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins (our Libarian and Archivist) using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
