One of my favourite passages in SA, Sammy getting routed by Nancy as he's picked on an easy target in John, whereas if confronted with a criminal he'd probably run away (he receives similar treatment from the GA in the closing scenes of PM.)

It is probably a reflection of how the local constable was thought of and treated in the time AR was writing about.

I must take issue with the comment "He knows Nancy misbehaves...", she certainly, as we would say today, pushes the boundaries (in WH and PM in particular) but I don't think she ever 'misbehaves'.
