While still in its early stages during the Great War, it was still a great help to those in need of it--especially those recovering from such injuries.

cobrakiller: They`re actually quite realistic. They were custom-made for the person`s face.

The photo is grainy and black&white, which means that thing could have looked horrible in reality.

Well surgery today uses skin grafts and what not. What they stitched onto him is obviously pure plastic

[quote]Works for getting your picture taken at least, and I imagine walking around in a crowd would be ok. I think it would less effective in face to face conversations, only cause some(if not most) people would bring it up.[/quote]
I was raised that staring at or intentionally avoiding looking at deformities or handicaps was rude let alone actually mentioning it or asking about it. I say all this because I find your story hard to believe. Canadians doing something perceived as rude by someone somewhere in the world? PREPOSTEROUS!

And that`s saying something when most of today`s plastic surgery started with something normal in the first place.
