[ Description: Two women with short hair — one dark skinned with dark hair being held protectively by the other who is pale skinned with orange hair. They both wear ornate tailored military dress uniforms with frilly black skirts. ]

In case you needed even more reasons to go read Monstrous Regiment, there is also a canon lesbian couple in the book, Tonker (Magda) and Lofty (Tilda).
Together they escaped from the Girls’ Working School—an institution where “Bad Girls” [aka anyone who breaks the absolutely ridiculous religious rules in Belgravia] go—and joined the army, intent on putting it as far behind them as possible. They’re absolute sweethearts and totally in love, always holding hands whenever they’re on patrol together.
Tonker is intensely protective of Lofty, and seems to be the only one who can get past how quiet the other girl is; Lofty, for her part, mostly keeps to herself and finds joy in fire…as in, she always seems to find matches and can make explosives from anything.
They disappear after the main events of the book, but the last Polly hears, the Girls’ Working School is burnt down and two slim hooded figures robbed the nearby bank…
(also I’ve been drawing the ladies in the tailored uniforms they get at the end because the book doesn’t really clarify if everyone gets every piece of regalia from the army stores, as it’s all shoddy and pilfered off of already dead soldiers x: )

Cathay Williams - Became the first and the only known female Buffalo Soldier. Enlisting in the US Regular Army 1866 at St. Louis, Missouri for a three year engagement, passing herself off as a man.

She is the first African American female to enlist, and the only documented to serve in the United States Army posing as a man under the pseudonym, William Cathay.

 Williams travelled with the 8th Indiana, accompanying the soldiers on their marches through Arkansas, Louisiana, and Georgia. She was present at the Battle of Pea Ridge and the Red River Campaign. At one time she was transferred to Little Rock, where she would have seen uniformed African-American men serving as soldiers, which may have inspired her own interest in military service. Later, Williams was transferred to Washington, D.C., where she served with General Philip Sheridan’s command. When the war ended, Williams was working at Jefferson Barracks.

The exact date of Williams’ death is unknown, but it is assumed she died shortly after being denied a pension, probably sometime in 1892. Her simple grave marker would have been made of wood and deteriorated long ago. Thus her final resting place is now unknown.

[ Description: Three images. The first shows an asian woman wearing a leather tunic over a shirt and pants. In addition to her knife and bedroll, she is alsoo carrying two infants, strapped front and back. The second shows a pale skined woman with an armoured cloak, a cat sitting on her shoulder. The third shows another pale skinned woman with long silver hair, a sword lain across the spill of her dress. ]
