According to Hammond in his bibliography of Arthur Ransome, at one time AR wanted the year of climbing the Matterhorn changed from 1901 to 1900, and climbing Kanchenjunga from 1931 to 1930 (ie SA to be set in 1929 and SD in 1930) but that was never done. Page 90-91 of Hammond but he does not say where he found this request (in Cape’s archives?) or when it dated from. Often though SA is taken as set in 1930.
