Finally the king’s men arrive and declare that the horse is Black Bess who belongs to the infamous highwayman Dick Turpin. Though Roger worked in Naval intelligence during the war as a cryptographer, he’s certainly not trained to investigate a potentially dangerous traitor. While "plentifully" more than likely serves as an acerbic allusion to Prohibition, the choice of "use" indicates the wine's utilitarian nature to him as a symbol of physical, spiritual, and scholarly pleasure.

Indeed, since Thane was writing during the late 1940s and early 1950s, the last few books were written from a fairly recent time-perspective.
