If i recall correctly, Trevor's butchery expert, also said he would probably remove the Kidney by hand, not by cutting it out.

Wasn't it around the time of the Pinchin St torso that someone suggested that London butchers had a recognisable style? The police and/or doctors didn't make mention of that. Or didn't see any similarity.
I don't think Bond saw Eddowes, but I believe he did hunt deer in the country so would most likely be familiar with gralloching - quickly removing the entrails before the meat spoils.
The suggestion of a typical London butchery technique was, I believe, suggested by a renowned medico from the Midlands who wasn´t necessarily very serious. I have forgotten his name, but the suggestion was seemingly not a very viable one.
Thanks for the clarification about the kidney removal.

Lawson Tait - that was the name of the medico, I believe.

Correct, Fish. And you're right in pointing out that Tait's notion of a typical "London butcher style" wasn't viable.

Hi Christer.
I would say the doctors didn't say too much. This was a rigid class system, they were also concerned to protect their profession.
We can't know what they were thinking, and they were quite reserved in what they did say.
