Interesting position from the RAC v MCC match

The top board contest from the match earlier this year between the MCC and the RAC saw Adam Eckersley-Waites eventually triumph over Roger Emerson, but not before an unusual opening had led to an exciting position full of tactics. I am grateful to Roger Emerson for his notes, which I have hopefully transcribed without too many errors.
