When the Dís are "signalling to Mars" (WH3) and initially get no reply, Dick says "Do it again" which Dorothea did: ''In matters like these, though she was the elder of the two, she always felt that Dick knew best.'' Of course, if Dick had been older than her, Dot would not have said "she did not think that Peggy could have been much older than herself" as if Dick was the elder he would have been about the same age as Peggy.
On relative ages John is generally taken as older than Susan; he was based on Taqui the eldest Altounyan child according to Hugh Brogan, as Roger could not be the only boy in S&A. And is Molly Blackett older than Captain Flint? Not stated definitely re John or Molly that I can recall.
