I was wrong about 15 but it was the summer term so David would
be about to become a fourth year, giving a minimum age of 13 and
9 months, max 14 and nine months. So if Dwj was using the then
standard year numbering the average is 14 and 3 months. This
pushes up the initial impression of Luke's age a bit too.
