Dit zeggen ze over de vrouwen van officiers.

"The plains were full of officers' wives on R & R."

R&R staat voor 'rest and relaxation'.

Kan iemand mij hiermee helpen?

Dutch translation:verlof / R&R (verlof)
Explanation:
R&R is simply leave. Officers are on R&R, their wives came to join them (in this case, I guess, the offices were not allowed to leave the mission area). In Dutch laager it is "verlof". My suggestion is as above.
