  fredthebear: If 12...c6 the Rook windmills along with 13.Re7+ Kd8 (If 13...BxRe7 14.QxBe7# Black's dark-squared bishop dare not interpose or capture the rook.) 14.Rxf7+ Ke8 15.Re7+ Kd8 16.RxBe6+ mates next.
Feb-08-18  sneaky pete: In printed game collections I found this game as Wallis vs NN, Sidney (Australia), 1920, when Philip Norman was only 14 years old (and most likekly living in Great Britain). The move 12 ... c6 "and white announced mate in 5 moves" is added.

White is probably
Francis J Wallis
