RE Nick Cox's little story; 
I am still listed on Pub Med as co-author with an entirely mythical 
C. Stat. (The standard abbreviation for Chartered Statistician):

J Am Acad Dermatol. 2001 Mar;44(3):492-6. 
A clinical and histologic comparison of electrosurgical and carbon dioxide laser peels. 
Acland KM, Calonje E, Seed PT, Stat C, Barlow RJ. 

However "Stat C" has only 4 publications credited on Pub Med, compared to 15 for "Chir B.".   

I wonder if "he's" REF returnable.

No idea, but your full reference with authors' degrees such as S.M.
and M.D. reminds that "B. Chir" as a surgical degree has been entered
into bibliographies as the name of a co-author. His or her
contributions are presumably incisive if sometimes lethal.
