John Marlott tells Robert Peel that the "thing on his hand" is syphilis, contracted it during the "Peninsular Campaign". This is inaccurate as the Peninsular Campaign occurred in 1862 in America, and at the time Marlott says this, the series is set in 1827. It would have been more accurate for John to say he contracted it during the "Peninsular War" in 1808, as he had made previous references that he "fought against Bonaparte at Waterloo" which followed in 1815.
