'And the red glare on Skiddaw roused the burghers of Carlisle'

The above reference has the poem whose last line is quoted in Swallowdale. This poem here was references as being much more difficult than the one Captain Flint suggested they "learn" for the GA, especially since they already knew it: "CASABIANCA". The use of warning beacon files on mountain tops was also seen in LORD OF THE RINGS.
