    Question on WWII military vehicles

    This is a picture of my parents when they met in India and I would like to know what type of vehicle is behind them.
    They never really talked much of the war so I'm just curious.

    WC56 or a WC57 if it has a winch

    I think it is a: WC56 Truck, Command Reconnaissance, 3/4 ton, 4x4 w/o Winch Dodge (G502) was a command and reconnaissance vehicle

    I agree with Redroth, it's a WC56 command car. Here's a pic:

    Thank you gentlemen. If you don't mind I would like to share this picture with the family. If you have family or friends that were part of WWII or Korea try to record their knowledge before it's lost.
    Hopefully we will stop repeating history...all the best.
