LEFT FOR DEAD SOLDIER SAVED BY MASONIC RING


Plymouthian, Bertram Blight, was one of the first men to receive extensive and radical plastic surgery at the end of the First World War. However he would never had had the opportunity of surviving to 1952 if it wasn’t for the ring that he was wearing at the time he incurred his horrific injuries.

Bored with his job as a bank clerk, in 1916 Blight joined the 9th Battalion, Devonshire Regiment and by October 1917 he was in the thick of action at Gheluvelt, near Ypres. Whilst trying to gain ground near a railway embankment, he was hit by machine gun bullets, suffering shocking facial injurers with his nose shot away along with his teeth and part of his face. As he was unconscious he was assumed dead and left on a pile of bodies of many other casualties.
