According to Wayne Hammond in his 2000 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. I see that I sent this to Tarboard on 19/1/2011, No 36548. Someone else suggested though that his notes for later books have the seris starting in 1930 though. And the latest S&A film was set in 1935.
