I'm surprised to see AQ regarding these questions as newly settled. I thought they'd both been settled at least once before.

You missed another relevant quote in PM, three pages into the first chapter (pp.9-10 in my Cape hardback): "Before leaving, Mrs Blackett had visited Nancy and Peggy at their school" (singular). I think that one has been appealed to in previous discussions.

One point which I can't remember whether we've discussed before: In WH chapter 5 we learn thet the Ds had previously skated "on the indoor skating rink close by the University buildings at home". Did we establish whether ther is/was a rink in Bloomsbury or other plausible London site?

Of course their father could have moved from another university to London between WH and PM - especially as he seems not to have the title Professor in the earlier books.
