This is an interesting picture of the sometimes overlooked medical pioneer and pathologist, Sir Bernard Spilsbury, whose work in that field led to important convictions in the criminal justice system, as well as acquittals. In later life he helped to deepen the understanding and study of forensic science, but he will always be remembered for his crucial role as a young pathologist whose skills and initiative helped to turn an anonymous cadaver into the credible corpse of a British officer in the great deception that was known as Operation Mincemeat.
