All information I have comes from [1]. In the game file given there, the rounds are not given. I added these, using the table above, which [1] also gives. Furthermore, I have assumed that one game was played per day.

The format was standard: an individual seven-round Swiss tournament in which the pairings were made so that players form the same team wouldn’t meet. There were six players per team. For the team ranking, the best four individual scores were used per team. Some extra players (Stuhr, Steffers, Molin & Parrott) participated but didn’t play for any team. The Belgian team was missing its usual top man Deleyn and didn’t do especially well, although Wantiez held his own.
