I've just had a look at this file in ChessBase. I think there may be a mistake in the players' names in one game:

1. Chesters, G - has 10 games in total, 2 in round 9, and has played Jones, B twice (round 1 and round 9)
2. Carleton, J - only has 8 games in total, no round 9 game

Perhaps the round 9 game shown as Jones-Chesters was actually Jones-Carleton?

Ian is absolutely right and thanks to him for spotting another senior moment! Game 161 is indeed Jones, B - Carleton, J and not Chesters, G.

Will try to amend the pgn file - not quite sure how to do it at the moment - and resubmit. I will also try to send a Final Table for the Individual Championship which would provide a cross-check for any other errors.

I have hopefully succeeded in changing the pgn database, the new version of which is attached.

Best wishes

A few mentioned players passed through or came from Canada, and/or I have played them. Nicholas Patterson, Alan Ludgate, Irwin Lipnowski, Ray Lee. Sharpe I think is "I.W. Sharpe" or "Ian Sharpe". David Youston corresponded, in the days of paper, pen, ink and Her Majesty in a rectangle with a number on it. In this case, the rectangle also carried the letters ACDN, one of them more than once.
