The Bird family were convinced that Irving and Thalia were married. They used to go to the Watson's to stay in Grantham during the war. One day a message came through that they had married with Ellen & John as witnesses. The family believed this of course, as on the death of Thalia the death certificate showed 'Slome, wife of etc' which they all thought was genuine.
The family knew there had been a wife from Ireland who had been very 'sickly' all her life and had died [another fabrication?] and that Irving had to be in London most of the week at his practice in Harley Street.There was a bit of a suspicion at one point that he may have had someone else in Carlisle. He opened a medical practice there on a part time basis. Thalia went to stay there on the weekends but he always put her up in a hotel and popped in to see her.
The only contact the family ever had for Irving was through his solicitor, they never had his home or work numbers.

Marilyn Slome - NEWS - Surprising what one finds on Google!

City of Glendale, CA
With information from an organization of insurance companies, Glendale police raided the home of Rouhel Feinstein. During the February 2001 raid, no evidence was found to support insurance fraud allegations and Feinstein was eventually exonerated. Feinstein and his wife, Marilyn Slome, sued the city for civil rights violations. The National Insurance Crime Bureau paid out $1,075,000 and the city of Glendale paid $750,000.
``This does not happen in civilized society,'' Price said of his client's arrest. ``I promise you this will be a great embarrassment to the Glendale Police Department. There is no way that anyone will be able to repair the damage to him (Feinstein) personally and professionally for what they've done.''

(Rouhel Feinstein is an ex south african living in Los Angeles )

Main subjects: Guy's Hospital Medical School 1947-52, Bright's disease, 1950s developments in cardiac surgery, Royal Army Medical Corps/ KEO 2nd Gurkhas, Royal College of Surgeons Buckston Browne Farm, tissue rejection/immunosuppression, Patricia Whelan, Peter Gorer, Nils Eckhoff, Russell Brock, Donald Ross, Sir Wilfrid Le Gros Clark, Sir Peter Medawar, John Hopewell, David Slome, Kendrick Porter, Joseph Murray.

More important, however, was a reawakening of thoughts of transplant surgery, stimulated by an Oxford visit of Nobel laureate Peter Medawar. Transfer in 1958 to a surgical registrarship at the Royal Free Hospital, London, yielded initial opportunities of transplantation research, through the encouragement of head of firm, John Hopewell and support from David Slome, of Royal College of Surgeons, who extended modest research facilities at the College's Buckston Browne Farm.
