    Not as relevant to this but I can recall my grandad telling me about his grandad, the man had served in the trenches in France all the way through and had ended up being shot in his chest, hadn’t died but for the rest of his life had a hole through his shoulder where the bullet had gone, he also always wore a silk scarf to cover the neck burns he had from Mustard gas, it was insane

    Please all look at the amazing work QVH in east grinstead ( uk )has done over the last 150 year. This is the home on plastic surgery where it really took off the staff and care there truly amazing. Brave soldiers gave their battle scared bodies to help a cause that we now take for granted.

    If ever there was was a true purpose for plastic surgery it is here, in this case. Not for vanity, but to give our heroes back their dignity.
