Just back from two weeks in India, and trying to remember exactly what we're told about the CS people's connections with India! There's a mention of Dick working in "the Deccan", but nowhere more specific. Juliet went to a school in "the Hills", which probably means Simla/Shimla. Lilimani is from Kashmir. I think we're told where Erica had been living, but I can't remember! Are we told anything about where Madge and Dick lived as children, and where Joey was born? It's all a bit vague, and it doesn't help that the Bettany parents sometimes died when Joey was a few weeks old but at other times Mr/Major David/Richard :roll: Bettany died before Joey's birth and Margaret Bettany (at least her name stays the same!) died in childbirth.

Dick seems to know quite a bit about the Carricks, so maybe they'd been stationed in the same area - unless Captain Carrick had created such a scandal that the entire British Raj knew his name :roll: .

Erica's family lived in Coorg/ Kodagu, so South West...

Thank you! I knew it mentioned a place, but couldn't remember what it was :lol: .
