These couple of pictures have been posted in this thread before in a very small format and at a very low res.
Posting again as they are very clear to see. For names look back through thread.

Been sent these pictures of ladies working at Coopers during WW2. The sender would like to know if anyone can name them for her.
Our member Bill Jolley may know who they are, or at least some of them.
