Notes
Winifred Holtby had been in Southampton seeing off Vera Brittain and her husband who were about to sail to America on the ""Berengaria"". A passenger on board the ship saw her pick some mustard and cress which she had found growing on the dock and put it in her buttonhole, and threw down a pink carnation for her to wear instead. It was this which she ""pinned to her coat"".
