I've just re-read SD.

"Watershed," said Titty, as if she had been waiting for the word, "I ought to have thought of that at once, instead of thinking it was the compass getting bumped."

Would it have been normal for a 9 year old of that time to know about such things? I'm pretty sure I didn't do that until I was about 11 or 12, when we covered rivers and drainage. I know when I first read SD I had to ask what the term meant.
