A reference is made to the "Bunty". This was a British comic magazine for girls, published weekly from 1958 to 2001. It was a collection of many short comic-strip stories, as well as letters, competitions, featured readers, puzzle pages, promotions, next-week previews and advertisements. The back page initially featured a cut-out doll and paper clothes. Unlike earlier and contemporary comics, it was aimed primarily at working-class readers under the age of 14. See more

Though we were only in our early 20s, little more than girls, we served the women of the East End in their hour of greatest need. In return for our care, they gave us the most precious gift they could: their trust. This made us brave and tireless. And in the main, we did not doubt ourselves, because we were not doubted. But we were not invincible. There were times when we faced challenges and choices of our own.
