Chessbase gave the same game starting with the 'Miles' move order and attribute it to 1818, St. Helena. Hope that Gen. Bertrand didn't let 'Boney' pull another fast one in 1820.

Most of the sets were interesting in some way. So all in all, worth a couple of hours if you are on the District Line on the way home. (er, apologies if you are Northern)
Time Out didn't think much of it.
