ETwA is saddened to report the recent death of Cyril Edwards at the age of 70 after a period of illness. Cyril played winks for Oxford University and served on the ETwA committee in the early 1970s. His articles certainly livened up Winking World. I think he was part of the England team that was victorious against an American team at that time (though I will have to check) - with England's comeback in the match attributed to an indulgence in lunch-time beer. Cyril played in tournaments regularly until about 1995, and occasionally thereafter - his last tournament was in 2005. Among other achievements, he taught my wife Christine how to drink whisky. He was undoubtedly the best scholar in medieval German to have played tiddlywinks, and will be missed by all who knew him.
