and did he lose it during a fight?
I never noticed Baby John Burgess having a glass eye. Now that I think about it. Perhaps he has.
Baby John Burgess
I heard a story told by Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read that an associate of his (Chopper) stabbed John Burgess in the eye during a fight on a beech in Australia. But other than Choppers’ story, there isn’t much info about it.
I remember reading somewhere that he did have a glass eye…
Reminds me of the joke about a man who had a glass eye and people said that one eye was cold meaningless and hard and the other was glass…
