Must be connected to :

The Guinea Pig Club

"Second World War (and post-war) period unofficial British award. The Guinea Pig Club was set up in July 1941. Its membership was made up of RAF patients of Dr Archibald McIndoe at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead, Sussex who had undergone facial plastic surgery there together with the hospital staff who had treated them. The image of the guinea pig was adopted in acknowledgement of the experimental nature of much of the surgery conducted on the subjects severe burns' injuries"

Aerodynamically impossible. With both wings coming out of the left side of its body, it would fly around in circles.
