Congratulations on interweaving the subsequent lives of the characters so imaginatively.

Two thoughts of my own:-

First, I think Jim Turner and Mary Walker start an affair in the course of SD, while Commander Walker is safely in the Far East, Bridget is in the capable hands of nurse, and the Swallows are camping on the other side of the lake.

Secondly, just as AR defies expectation by making the Farland twins non-identical, and Dum and Dee very similar but not twins, I think that Nancy would defy expectations derived from her tomboy manner by proving vigorously heterosexual. AR hints as much in the "missing chapter" between pages 178 and 209 of the first edition of GN? when she and John spend the day alone together.

And what happens when Miss Lee, driven out by the Communists, arrives in England and encounters Jim Turner again?
