Faces of the First World War

This weekend, people up and down the country will be marking Remembrance Sunday and remembering the hundreds of thousands of people who died in conflict.

For me, it’s also an opportunity to reflect on the enormous advances in plastic and reconstructive surgery that resulted from the work of pioneering surgeons a hundred years ago – achievements currently being celebrated in a moving exhibition at the Hunterian Museum.

I’ve recorded this short film, explaining the advances and how they continue to be important even today.
