    We've had amazing stories of family members identifying their parents or grandparents from our Flickr Commons collection. We would love to know the identity and story of these two young women.

    • 27/Jan/2014 10:12:28 this 1946 Courier-Mail report includes a pic of the girl on the left which might have been taken on the same occasion...per the Courier-Mail she is Miss Eileen Quinlan...from West End...bit of a rebel turning her military trousers up like that... Just going on the Courier-Mail report it appears the pics were taken the previous day in Brisbane - ie. 10 January, 1946... here's a PS item

    [[email protected]] There is a story here! Thanks for starting us off. There appear to be stories relating to these "Manila girls" for a couple of years. We'll post our findings here.
