    If you zoom in on the picture you can see on the first two jeeps the small holes in the face of the bumpers in line with the frame rails that indicate that these are Ford GPW,s not Willys MB,s.The Willys bumpers only had the crank hole in the center of the bumper.It,s hard to tell but I think the third one in front behind the standing chief or officer looks like it has the small hole indicative of a GPW as well.

    Lester, you are absolutely right. I used the term MB, but didn’t really investigate the picture. Thanks!

    Ya learn something new every day. Thanks for the GPW facts, Lester.
    I love the old photos you find, Dave. Keep throwing them in once in a while.
