"Molly & Jim Turner and Bob Blackett climbed the Matterhorn in 1901 (SD). Jim would then have been been 11 or so if born in 1890 but I thought perhaps the Turners and Bob were then somewhat older, perhaps teenagers?"

I suppose I always imagined that Bob and Jim were school friends. Bob came home with Jim on holiday, where Jim introduced him to his sister, Molly, who was enough of a tomboy to join them on their Matterhorn Expedition (Nancy and Peggy must have gotten it from both sides) --and things progressed from there.

Might that push everyone's ages up a few years, which would fit more with Commander Walker's career?

Could the Oxford boat race clues be shuffled around to make that fit?
