An error in the Fall of Reach? Blasphemer!

On chapter 22 page 208 [of The Fall of Reach] it reads "His left arm had been burned away from the elbow down", then on page 210 it reads "His eyes watered from the pain, but he managed to salute the Master Chief with his left hand." Clearly just a mistake, it was his right hand he saluted with.

Good eye. Judging from the general flow of the text, it is likely that they intended for his right arm to be burned away, adding the comment that James still managed a salute with his left hand possibly to show his strength and will.

Oops. Ah well, to err is human...
