Watched the 2017 film of "Swallows and Amazons" a few days ago (on Netflix streaming online) and thought that it made Roger look a bit stupid – he loses Daddy’s pocket knife and manages to fall overboard from Swallow! And going to the island in Swallow they manage to lose their hamper of supplies overboard.
Plus of course the two spies which adds some excitement and a chase on the roof and sides of a passenger steam train, plus the appearance of vintage vehicles – a seaplane and a motorcycle and sidecar to add to Mr Jackson’s truck which picks them up at the station. Don’t think the Jacksons or Dixons or the Tysons (Mrs Tyson and Robin) have any motor vehicles in the books. And the film is set in 1935 rather than 1930.
