Legless in Belgium.
Posted by Exile on June 26, 2006
In the closing moments of the battle of Waterloo, a cannon ball struck the Earl of Uxbridge as he rode with the Duke of Wellington.
The Duke said “By God, you’ve lost your leg.”
The Earl said “By God, so I have.”
The remains of the leg were amputated in a house nearby and the owner buried the leg in his garden where it was a place of interest for some years.
