Hi again Bert:
I have been studying your Chev photo for some time now and I think I was incorrect in calling it a 1543X2.
I am not sure which designation you intended in your post but I now think it is a CC60LX2 or a CC60LX3.
The 1543X2 had 32X6 tyres with duals on the rear. The CC60L had 10:50-16 tyres, single rear on the X2 and dual on the X3.
I don't think I have ever seen a photo of an X3 and your photo seems to show a vehicle with dual rear wheels so I immediately thought of a 1543X2. In looking closer, the tyres on your vehicle seem much too large for a 1543X2 and you can see the hubs on the rear wheel which to my eyes are the very distinctive style of the larger wheel.
If either one or both of us are correct, this still leaves the mystery of where Kerry's photo was taken.
To the best of my knowledge, these trucks only went to North Africa. I have seen some photos of some really unusual vehicles that German units took to Norway and perhaps some of these units may have come from North Africa, I just don't know. I do believe that some countries in North Africa do receive some snow in the winter but I cannot pinpoint the kind of geography depicted in Kerry's photo.
Anyway, I am putting up two photos here to show the different wheel hubs, not necessarily 1941 models but the wheels were the same.
