As time goes by, we like to look at our history to convince us that it is only our present time which is far from perfect and history was reasonably good.

- Walter Yeo was severely wounded while working in the Navy in the World War I which damaged most of his facial skin. Hence, he went for a facial skin transplant and become the world’s first person to receive such a surgery. For the surgery, skin was taken from his body’s other parts.
