I’m not sure that Ransome would have actually mentioned Roedean by name. Product placement is a bit coarse. Just as Miss Lee said ‘Gleat Marlow’ rather than the name of the school, she would have said ‘Brighton’ rather than ‘Roedean’. The trouble is that in Miss Lee-speak, this would have come out as ‘Blighton’, which would be a touch unfortunate. So perhaps it’s just as well that Ransome decided on his little tribute to Walpole.
