Bader's bunny (Daily Telegraph 25 May 06)
The link reckons Bader lost both legs below the knee.
Unless I am very much mistaken, he lost his right leg above the knee, so that when he wanted to drive his MG sports car again, he had his garage reverse accelerator and clutch so that he had a little more accelerator control through his left leg (below the knee) and his right leg (above the knee) only had to stomp the clutch.
According to the book, the mechanic who delivered the modified car found controlling it to be a nightmare.
Obviously didn't own his lucky bunny in 1931......!
Just been for a look and there it is!! Hmm, wonder how much I'd get on eBay???????
