Great detective work and a fascinating article, Manoj! The Sunday
Times is easily duped with stories (remember Hugh Trevor-Roper's "Hitler
Diaries") but of course it should apologize here, to you and its readers.

intended, and the BMJ hasn't picked this up in the paper and on-line
editions. Keep up the journalism - Tony Chapman
