"Women, most of them very young, toiled through the night over unfamiliar country, carrying heavy cases of petrol and paraffin... Street lamps were broken, 'Votes for women' was painted on seats at Hampstead Heath, keyholes were stopped with lead pellets, house numbers were painted out... old ladies applied for gun licenses to terrify the authorities.
