In determining whether a particular document constitutes a sufficient notice, “a modicum of commonsense” is appropriate (Venn v Morgan [1949] 2 AII ER 562, Lord Goddard CJ at 563) (...). Errors in, for example the description of the alleged offence may be ignored, if the notice nevertheless served its purpose and the accused was not misled (Pope v Clarke [1953] 1 WLR 1060, Lord Goddard CJ at 1062).

— Scrimgeour–Wedderburn v Procurator Fiscal, Kirkcaldy [2019] HCJAC 57 (26 July 2019)



Modicum of success? I do not think so. There can be either success or failure but not "modicum of success".
