about

They were the 'fried' airmen, the 'mashed' airmen of the war. But they were about to encounter the best piece of lucky they had seen in a while--the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, Sussex. They were about to become members of The Guinea Pig Club. Archibald McIndoe and Ross Tilley were the surgeons who put the airmen's bodies back together, performing experimental plastic surgery. But they did more: they took the battered boys and helped rebuild their spirits, gave them back their confidence, and returned them to society. The 'Guinea Pigs' not only survived, they thrived. This is a story of the Canadian Wing of the most unusual 'club' in the world.
