As to your aside:

per American Heritage:
"In the grim slang of the British army during World War I, it referred to a quadruple amputee."

per The Phrase Finder http://phrases.shu.ac.uk/meanings/85850.html
"Originally a soldier who had lost his arms "and legs and had to be conveyed in a wicker wheelchair."

Just go to The Phrase Finder and type one in and you'll often get the answer.
