Guinea Pig Club memorial 'a fitting tribute' to airmen

A memorial to airmen who suffered disfiguring war injuries is a fitting tribute, a 93-year-old veteran who helped raise the funds for it said.

Dr Sandy Saunders, who was badly burned in a crash in 1945, is a member of the Guinea Pig Club, so called because its members underwent pioneering surgery by war-time doctors.

A statue in the men's honour was unveiled earlier by The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
