Slater Bob says yer mother’s father (Grandfather Turner) took me wi' him when he went to Africa after that same stuff (gold) (PP3).

Captain Flint brought his parrot Polly from Zanzibar, an island off Africa (SA11).

He promises to get a monkey (Gibber) for Roger after Titty and Roger find his chest, saying that there are monkeys nearer than Africa and he will get a monkey when he goes south to London to see his publisher (SA27,29).

When Dick tells Captain Flint of Slater Bob’s story of gold discovered by the young man called up in the Great War he dismisses it as a local legend .... Thirty years ago it was the South African war .... (PP33).
