    For decades the MoD has denied using unwitting servicemen as “guinea pigs” in radiation experiments during the race to build a nuclear bomb.

    But the widow of one Cold War pilot has blown that claim apart after obtaining secret documents that show he was used in a deadly experiment as he was ordered to fly through the cloud of a thermonuclear explosion.


    And Shirley Denson, 83, said husband Eric had such a massive dose of radiation to his head in the 1958 flight that it caused *crippling headaches so bad that he later killed himself saying he couldn't stand the pain.

    Two of their four daughters were born with abnormalities as were some grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    The papers show Eric, 24 at the time, had his head alone exposed to 65 years’ worth of normal *background *radiation - the same as 17,500 dental X-rays - during just six minutes spent flying through the cloud at Christmas Island in the South Pacific.
