I have speculated in this way myself Peter.

My views (and please everyone remember this is no more than a game) that John was in the Navy but nothing as outstanding as he may have hoped for, Roger in the Navy too but taken prisoner in the far east.

Ted Walker, I imagine would have been heavily involved (as being already in the Navy) but is killed in the early years of the war.

Susan, also in the Navy but in a far more important work than any of the others desk-base. Dick, a definite for Bletchley Park recruited from university.

I agree with you about Nancy and feel she would have been frustrated by the lack of action!

Titty and Dorothea I imagine surviving in London, with Titty having a good time much in the way Mary Wesley wrote of her own wartime experiences in her novel 'The Camomile Lawn'. As for Peggy, I don't know, probably tried to be like Nancy but never quite achieved it.
