Perhaps we should mention his creator Ian Fleming
And I have to slip in John Bond, John Bond was an Elizabethan privateer, probably a pirate and possibly a spy, he adopted for his family motto 'The World is not Enough', a motto filched from Philip II of Spain. The young Ian Fleming went to Durnford, a prep school in Dorset which just happens to be next door to the Bond estate.
(Fleming and John Bond are only 14 degrees from each other. I'm 27 degrees from Fleming, 24 from John Bond ; like many of my connections both via a transported highway robber)
