- One of the accounts was of the opening of Byron's tomb in 1938-- over a hundred years after he was buried. i think that was one where the legs were described as shriveled.
Other accounts just mention a deformity of the leg-- some say right and some say left. he walked and swam etc. and shot. he wa snot going to go into battle mano a mano but was ot be a general. On an earlier trip he did capture an enemy ship.
More references to come.
