I was about to say, “what, again” as he died quite early yesterday but as you say, it was not well publicised. The MSM couldn’t fit it in yesterday amongst all the 'We are all going to die’ doom & gloom.William Frankland. A unexpected twin, immunologist and sportsman.
Born 1912. Survived Singapore 1942 to 1945. Responsible for ensuring that hayfever sufferers get a daily pollen count. Argued with Alexander Fleming that penicillin might cause allergic reactions in certain people. Tested anti venom on himself. Still publishing papers and appearing as an expert witness aged over 100.
He wasn't mentioned on mainstream news and his obituary appears below a second-rate comedian's in today's Telegraph.
Farewell, most excellent of gentlemen, and thank you.
I saw it in Death List Yesterday.
A remarkable life indeed. RIP William Frankland.
