Hi Sturm:

The Mack is an NR 10 ton 6x4. The other one is a Canadian Dodge D60 3 tonner. Looks like both are in the North African theater probably used by British or Commonwealth forces.

Hi Sturm:

Looks to me like a 1934 Dodge 1.5/2 ton truck modified for the Army in limited numbers. I believe they were still in service in 1940.

Picture of that GMC truck (from The Observer's Army Vehicles Directory to 1940, by Bart H. Vanderveen):

This is the chassis of an M 10 tank destroyer with the turret removed. They were used as artillery prime movers for heavy artillery such as the 8 inch and 240 MM pieces.
