They are traditional Dutch headdress called oorijzer or ear-irons, which varied in material and size per town or region. The were adorned by a lace cap.

Back in those days women would not go outside except when fully dressed up in traditional clothes.

Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, Home Front, 1944.

The Ram was a Cruiser tank designed and built in Canada, based on the American M3 Medium tank. Around 2000 were produced until mid-1943 when the decision was made to adopt the Sherman tank for all British and Canadian armoured units. Although the majority of Ram's were not used in combat, a few were converted into observation post vehicles during the North West Europe campaign (1944-1945).

From an album containing 233 photographs compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).

Hanno, this list is very useful but does anyone have a link for Canadian Military photos, as I have not found a searchable archive online yet?
