    Sandy Saunders: WW2 'Guinea Pig' pilot dies from cancer - BBC News

    One of the last surviving members of a group of World War Two pilots who underwent pioneering plastic surgery has died from cancer.

    Dr Sandy Saunders, who was badly burnt in a RAF crash in 1945, died on Sunday.

    The 94-year-old, from Leicestershire, along with other wounded veterans were given experimental skin grafts - they were dubbed the Guinea Pig Club.

    (feel free to move if in wrong section as I see there are quite a few threads on the Guinea Pig Club)
