More than one reader has alerted us to a problem that we did not spot in this obituary of Brian Lake by Andrew Sims (BMJ 2008;336:453, 23 Feb; doi: 10.1136/bmj.39491.624028.BE). The published version says that he was born in 1922 and qualified in 1940. The readers’ suspicion that Dr Lake was very unlikely to have qualified at 18 was confirmed by referral to the Medical Directory, which states that Dr Lake’s date of qualification was in fact 1945.
