Anyone know this name?, probably not, no particular reason anyone would.

I just read that he died on the 29th August.

He was the last surviving member of the Guinea Pig Cub, that remarkable group of burns victims and their treatment team led by Sir Archie McIndoe.

Closes the book on an amazing story whose legacy lives with us today in the remarkable acts of reconstructive surgery performed around the world.
