When the S&As reach the summit of Kanchenjunga, Roger finds the 1897 Jubilee brass box Peggy reads out the paper:
:August the 2nd 1901. We climbed the Matterhorn:
Molly Turner; J. Turner; Bob Blackett
Thatís mother and Uncle Jim said Peggy in a queee voice
Who is Bob Blackett? asked Susan
He was father said Nancy (SD27)
So the S&As sign on the other side, dating it Aug. 11, 1931
