Answering my own question

 About 6 years ago I put up a post concerning Ringo Starr learning chess during the recording of Sgt Peppers (Link here). I finished the post with a question about who taught Ringo to play. I am now in a position to answer my own question, courtesy of the book "Revolution In The Head" by Ian MacDonald. While the rest of the band were busy songwriting and mixing, Ringo and Neil Aspinall (Beatles PA) taught themselves to play chess "to while away the time".
