These "two ladies" appear in Flags in the Dust in one of the stories young Bayard brings back from the War. Apparently these women were the occasion for a fight in a bar between Bayard and an "Australian major" (124). "Ladies" is certainly being used ironically, but whether the women are simply lower class, or working prostitutes, cannot be established from the text or the context.
