Let's say for the sake of a hypothesis that Mr. Long John Silver was not the infamous pirate with the West Country Bristolian accent of Treasure Island, but John Silver who lost his leg from the knee down as a result of a tangle with a great white shark when he fell overboard in his sailing vessel. He was lucky to survive, but he lost his lower leg.
