This photo was taken at Clark Field.  Some of the half-tracks, in the Philippines, had .75 milometer guns and known as Self Propelled Mounts, while others had .30 or .50 milometer machine guns.  Those half-tracks with .75 milometer guns were assigned to the Philippine Army with American drivers from the 200th Coast Artillery.  The sergeants, who were in command of the half-tracks, were from the Philippine Scouts.
