Thanks for the suggestions. Some interesting names in their own right.

I found out who it was. It took a few hours but, as they say, Google is your friend.

The master is in fact German (but born in Chile) and he died a few days before the end of the second world war at the age of 21. His name is Klaus Junge.

Or perhaps Carl Schlechter?

Not a position. I am after a name. It's driving me crazy.

There was a chess master who died at the end of (last few days) world war 1 or 2 who was described in one of my chess books as even better/quicker than Tal at working out combinations. The book had a couple of his games and described his death as a sad loss for chess.

Any ideas? I think he was Russian but I am not sure and I think it was world war 1 but again not sure. And he was about 25 when he died.

A big sloppy kiss to anyone who can help out. I really don't want to go through all of my chess books .....
