Transcript:
It is with great regret that we have to announce the death, on Friday 18th July 1952 of D.N.A. Helix (crystalline)
Death followed a protracted illness which an intensive course of besselised injections had failed to relieve.
A memorial service will be held next Monday or Tuesday.
It is hoped that Dr. M.H.F. Wilkins will speak in memory of the late helix
