I have already stated that we have now reviewed the whole position and made priorities which give those who need a limb to maintain their employment, priority over other classes.

The limbs are all done by individual craftsmen, and a number of fittings are involved so that the man who is to get a limb will have one on which he can walk without discomfort.
