This club was founded for all ex-R.A.F. or Allied airmen, who as a result of burns had at least two plastic surgery operations by Sir Archibald McIndoe at East Grinstead.
In 1977 the club first visited the Atomic Energy Research Establishment (formerly the Aerodrome), afterwards dining at the Royal British Legion Club. In the following year the assembly point was the White Hart Harwell which had become a tradition by 1985. The White Hart runs a darts knockout, which with sponsorship donations and an auction makes a fund to help those members who now find that age is adding to their disabilities.
Originally the club had about 650 members, of which about fifty have visited Harwell, many making repeat visits. “Guinea Pig Club” plaques have been presented to the Royal British Legion Club, the White Hart, the Atomic Energy Research Establishment and Harwell Village Church.
