"Joseph Moore had his leg cut off just above the knee. I don't know if wooden legs were available in those days but he did not have one. Instead he had a plug of wood attached to a shovel handle, a stiff leather case shaped to fit over his leg with straps around his waist to keep it on. He was able to walk about, but it was difficult for him to carry anything" To make carrying easier, he had obtained a wooden trolley with wheelbarrow wheels which had been used to carry one of the first orchard spay pumps used in Bannockburn.
