Talk about the lunatics taking over the asylum, Bull was a Doctor at St Georges, the same time as Dr William "blackened face and spectacles" Holt.

I thought it was, Robert?
Chris could only find one who fitted the circumstances, William C Bull from Bromborough, later a surgeon and lecturer at St Georges Hospital.

Hi Jon

No, Chris tried to make the medical student claim work, and found someone who fitted the bill. But that was just to see if someone fitting that criterion could be found. It was only a provisional identification. He then found the real Bull, which you can see him doing further down the thread.
