In reading Jasper fforde's The Well of Lost Plots, I came across a reference to the Flashman character being recycled from Tom Brown's Schooldays.

Mr. Fforde is indeed a Flashman fan (as is Terry Pratchett).

I was reading a learned book on the influence of Xenophon's Anabasis, and in particular the call of 'The Sea, the sea,' by th Ten Thousand, and came upon a reference to Flashmans little pun 'Thalassa or the thalatta- was it the former or the latter?'.
