This match was played on Sunday July 13 and Monday July 14, so France won the match on its faîte national. The players were received at the City Hall with speeches by schepen Coorman, Dierman (honorary president of the BSB/FBE) and Bicsay (president of the FFE). The games started on 14:00 in a room above Café Elberg, Kiekenmarkt 35, Brussels. I managed to find more than half of the games, but in some there are moves missing

Wanted

  • Quite a few games.
  • Ellinger’s and Gotti’s first names.
