Well, the only thing I can say is that they are ahead of their time as putees were still officialy worn in 1942 according to the 1933 regulation on uniforms; this was only modified by the 1948 regulation .....
Now an easy one: type and users?

"Between 1939 and 1942 Sweden bought a total of 142 Leichte Feld Haubitze 18 from Germany, designated 10,5 cm haubits m/39. "

A Canadian Ford F 60, F.A.T. version ?
Like this one ?

These Commonwealth vehicles are awful: they all look the same and I become mad at trying to discern the minute differences between them!

Not a Canadian model. :? ( I said "easy", not "obvious" :lol: )

There was already one hint - a photo caption ("all steel body", i.e. no canvas cover). :wink:

I also find CMP vehicles somewhat confusing/frustrating. :roll:

If not a Ford from Canada, then a Chevrolet from Australia :D
See what I mean by "looking all the same" :x
Especially if one takes into consideration that the chassis is Canadian and the bodywork Australian :x :x

Thank you!
Before finding the right link, I consulted may Vanderveens, I must say. I did not just type "All steel body non-Canadian Ford FAT submitted by the Edge on the official Allied & Neutral Armies quiz thread ".....
Now, what is this martial Marine riding?

I mean, he is riding a bicycle of course; but what are the mark and type?

Should be a Columbia Compax.

I actually had one in 1949 or so. My Dad was a career Marine Officer and a lot of this stuff was left over after the war.
The Officer's Quarters area we lived in at Camp Pendleton, Cal had several former messhalls converted to storage areas where one could find all sorts of goodies including brand new Juke Boxes, a complete Bowling Ally and lots of other things like leftover bicycles.
