From Nash - '"There were frequent changes in the make-up of the party, and Turvey's lists are confused and inconsistent, with considerable variation in the given ages of some of the members. Benjamin Wright for instance, 15 is entered as 22 on the first party list and 17 - entailing a saving of five pounds in deposit money - on the final sailing list."
