Default MCP 2Lb Anti-Tank portees

I found this photo in the AWM data base. It is Australian Anti- Tank units at Tobruk in 1941 but the trucks look to me like 1940 Chevrolet 4X2 units with the open cab similar to the LRDG chev's (Egyptian assembled?) rather then the normal CMP portee.

I date them as 1940 rather then 1941 because of the seperate side light on the mudguard in the rear vehicle rather then the side light being on top of the headlight in the 1941 model. But then again not been able to see the grill for positive ID they may be 1939 models.

Can anyone confirm this and if possible show more photos of them?

Cheers
Cliff
