Someone named Chas certainly used the Tracking changes mode. This is a feature that facilitates collaborative work. It is described in chapter Tracking changes to a document in Working with Text (part of LibreOffice Writer Guide).

You can get rid of these comments by reviewing, accepting or rejecting all changes by EditTrack changesManage (note: the menu title may differ slightly depending on your version of LibreOffice).
