Barker, Clive

The sweat-making business of learning to walk again, and the slow realisation that his leg had mended "short." That he was going to be permanently lame.
Как трудно было заново учиться ходить! И как ужасно было осознать, что сросшаяся нога стала короче, и он всю жизнь будет хромать.

My back had now become very stiff and sore, my tonsils were painful from the cabman's fingers, and the skin of my neck had been scratched by his nails; my feet hurt exceedingly and I was lame from a little cut on one foot.
