Winifred Holtby's Letter

Yorkshire Film Archive

Yorkshire Film Archive

In 1914, Winifred Holtby was a 16 year old pupil at St Margaret’s School, Scarborough.

This is an extract from a letter written by Winifred in the days after the bombardment, to her friend, the head girl of St Margaret's, who was one of many pupils removed from the school in fear of German attack.

The letter was subsequently published by the Bridlington Chronicle, who also arranged for its syndication in Australia. Prints of it were taken and sold by Winifred and her mother at threepence each, in aid of the Red Cross.
