The Flying nurses are the Jeep dames of the day :)!

On top of the "Flying nurses", the beautiful photos are also showing two WWII symbolic icons : the C-47 "Skytrain" and the Jeep.

In the Solomon Islands, Off-duty Medical Nurses are having a tour in a jeep.

She does not look very distinguished, but for these guys in the Jeep, she is for sure the Dame of the day :) !

I'm sure my grandkids would also love a mini jeep.
It's quite expensive for a body kit only.
