Note: There a few (very few) discrepancies among these various authoritative sources as to certain dates. In these instances we have taken an editorial decision on the date based on the balance of reasonable probability and all available circumstantial evidence. These discrepancies might have been directly resolved had access to the Quest’s log, held at SPRI, been possible. However, owing to covid pandemic restrictions, at the time of writing, this has not been possible.
