Harry Golombek

Harry Golombek (1 March 1911 – 7 January 1995), was a British IM and honorary GM, arbiter and author.  He won the British championship three times (1947, 1949, and 1955) and finished second in 1948. On the outbreak of  WW2 in September 1939, Golombek was in Buenos Aires competing in the Chess Olympics and when he returned to the UK he worked at Bletchley Park working on the Enigma project.

Here’s an instructive example of his play.
