Re ownership of islands, in the Night Sailing episode (SA21) the Swallows tie up at an island which has a notice on it “Private. Landing Forbidden”. Susan says “Well, we didn’t exactly land”.

A the end of the holiday (SA31) Nancy says “we shan’t be at school for ever. We’ll be grown up, and then we’ll live here (i.e. on the island) all the year round”. John replies “I shall be going to sea some day, and so will Roger. ;But we’ll always come here on leave”. I recal;l a omment somewhere saying that John seems to have a more mature/realistic attitude. But in fact John like Nancy assumes that as adults the Swallows and Amazons will all return and live on Wild Cat Island! Earlier when Titty says we will come again “Every year. For ever and ever” Mrs Dixon says “we all think that when we’re young”.
