Dorothea is the elder: When they are Signalling to Mars "In matters like this, though she was the elder of the two, she always felt that Dick knew best" (WH2). Dorothea tells Dick to be careful when they are stopping the doctor, like Susan with Titty and Roger (WH8). As here she is Susanish sometimes: at the North Pole she suddenly decides that "We must leave the Pole at once" because they had not told the Dixons where they were going or that they could be late (WH28). Dick objects because they have signalled to the others; but not because they are safe in a shelter, and a wintry night in a blizzard is not the time to start the return trek! And they are probably wet through.
