About this work
The two maimed sailors support themselves on crutches on the irregular cobble-stones of a London street. The sailor on the left holds his hat in his left hand as if begging, a crutch under his arm; his left leg is amputated, his right arm, which is without a hand, is raised towards his face, his right eye is bandaged. The sailor on the right is in back view and has lost his right leg and supports himself on two crutches
