They were the "fried" airmen, the "mashed" airmen of the war. Canadians took to the skies young, fit and whole. Some of them burned and were mangled. In another war they would have been hushed up, shut away in institutions. But they were about to encounter the best piece of luck they has seen in a whilethe Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, Sussex. They were about to become members of the Guinea Pig Club.

This is the story of the Canadian Wing of the most unusual club in the world.
