Caption: Archibald McIndoe (1900-1960), plastic surgeon. After studying medicine at the University of Otago in New Zealand, he moved to London and became a clinical assistant in the Department of Plastic Surgery at St Bartholomew's Hospital. In 1934, McIndoe received a Fellowship of the American College of Surgeons and in 1939 was appointed as consultant plastic surgeon to the Royal Air Force. At the outbreak of World War II he moved to the Queen Victoria Hospital in Sussex, which had established a centre for plastic surgery. Here he earned an international reputation for greatly improving the rehabilitation and treatment of badly burned crew. Plastic surgery was still in its infancy and his ex-patients set up 'The Guinea Pig Club' in 1941, which perpetuates his memory.
