These photographs, of a seriously injured army sergeant, were taken to record his progress through a succession of reconstructive operations. They are dated (left to right) 18 September 1918, 8 January 1919, 9 April 1919, and 16 April 1919. A skin flap was taken from the patient's forehead to fill a gap by the side of the nose. Total reconstruction was carried out between 9 April 1918 and 21 May 1919. A later series is shown in the next picture.

Photographs by Dr Albert Norman, Honorary Scientific Officer, King George Military Hospital (later the Red Cross Hospital), Stamford Street, London 1918.
