Sir Patrick (or Dr Patrick Moore as he then was) was generous enough to write the foreword to The Complete Chess Addict and played correspondence chess against Mike Fox.

He also provided this game for publication in the book.



There are several chess references in his autobiography.

BCM has posted a brief tribute with an image (supplied by KG Howe of the ICL Press Office) from our archive.
