The first photo looks like a Morris Quad with some armour added on. Most of the others look to my like armoured car conversions of Morris C9 trucks.

The last photo in your first post could be a Morris CS9

I believe this one belonged to the Trans Jordan Arab Legion :



AFAIK it's a Wagner armored car. Such vehicles were built on Ford or Chevrolet truck chassis.

Based on the front wheel hubs and wheel rims that armored car is based on a late 1930's Chevy truck. On the Fords of that era the front hubs had a large crome cap, and the lug nuts were much larger than the Chevy's.

I am curious about the open top trucks in the large group photo. Does anyone know what they are?

This one carries Arab numbers (102) - captured Arab equipment...?



A slightly different vehicle...

The military parade picture has been taken in Amman, Jordan, on September 11, 1940. It was the 24th anniversary of the Arab revolt under King Hussein.
