Chris Baker - Making sense of death: Sir Bernard Spilsbury in the Great War

Chris Baker, from Leamington Spa, explores the life and times of leading Home Office pathologist Sir Bernard Spilsbury. Spilsbury came to public attention for his work in the famous Crippen trial of 1910 and thereafter was rarely out of the headlines. During the war Spilsbury was involved in many notorious cases including the ‘Brides in the bath’ murders and he also detected TNT poisoning through examination of munitions workers who died in service. Later, he was on the scene of assassination of the Chief of the Imperial General Staff, Sir Henry Wilson, in 1922. Some of Spilsbury’s forensic work dealt with the violent aftermath of war, including examination of bodies brought back from France, and murders committed by men who discharged from the army on medical grounds. Spilsbury’s grisly business provides an unusual insight into the war years, so bring your friends, family and crime fans for a spot ...

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
