Hi Kerry
I think the top bus is a Belgian Willems based on that distinctive front bumper. As to what model or coachmaker I don't know.

Thanks
Richard

Hi Richard and Max,

excellent ID! My compliment! Here a pic of such a bus (source of the pic: an expired ebay auction).

Best regards

I think this is the first time on this thread that we had seen a bus as gun tractor.

Hi John
That is a very interesting photo. The gun is a 25mm French Hotchkiss AT gun. Do you have any idea as to when and where this photo was taken?

Thanks
Rich

Any thoughts on this one please? (The photographer cut off the rear end, not me...)

Location is the Louvre Palace, Paris, circa 1942.

Hi John,
I don't have an exact match on the coachwork but it looks much like a ca.1935 Citroën to me:

Hi Sturm 78,

very good ID: I think like You, that it is the type O 2600.

Best regards
