Why is 111 called nelson?

The number 111 is sometimes called "a Nelson" or "Nelson's" (particularly as a score in cricket or darts) after Admiral Nelson, who allegedly only had "One Eye, One Arm, One Leg" near the end of his life. (This is sometimes bowdlerised to say that he lost "One Eye, One Arm, One Life" during his naval career.) Another suggestion is that the number is derived from his three great victories, thus Copenhagen, Nile and Trafalgar which gives the sequence "Won - Won - Won".
