Ye-e-esss, I think you have something here. Haggard, Bulldog Drummond, Q, some of Stevenson, even ... I read a lot if that stuff in my mis-spent youth, and though Fleming modernised it - post-WW2 instead of pre- , the tone does seem familiar. In fact, modernisation might be all that Fleming did?

 Thanks - Fleming was bothering me.
