Martha is the woman that Lieutenant Cross is in love with. He is often reading her letters and poems and looking at her photographs. He is also always thinking and day dreaming about her. When Lavender gets killed, he blames himself for being distracted by Martha. She symbolizes the distraction that gets men killed.
