Enjoyed this post about Nelson's character.

But I think it's a bit unfair to say his arm has regrown in the picture! If you look carefully at the right sleeve it's kind of limp, with a funny fold, and the end tucked in his pocket. And Nelson is using his left hand to point to the map, which would be an unnatural pose for most people. (Not that Victorian artists were averse to unnatural poses...)
