- A mascot-style teddy bear dressed in the style of Farawayland's Royal Winnipeg Rifles regiment was a gift made to Heidemarie W. Schnaufer for her 16th birthday.
- Farawayland Witches being sent for enrolled service in Britannia appears to be a fairly strong reference to how RCAF pilots were sent to Britain for air force training to assist during the Battle of Britain. The exact details for this are not elaborated canonically, though given some of the in world context and implications: it's possible Farawayland witches may be allowed to enroll in or be selected for overseas scholarships to witch magical academies or even military witch training academies in Britannia to expand and hone their inherent skills.
