Lovely shot of a McLaughlin ambulance and VAD driver. This Canadian firm was a subsidiary of General Motors apparently. Thankyou Google !

McLaughlin Buick is still a recognizable name for old car folk in this country - interestingly GM is just in the process of closing its Oshawa plant which was where McLaughlin was from.

Two 'new' images recently acquired at present defying positive identification. Assumed to be French army ownership.

That's it. Thanks Alan.  Made less than $10,000. Seems quite reasonable. Lots of other interesting stuff in the auction as well. All went for very little.

except that it seems to be flat at the bottom. 

A not-exhaustive search of the round-radiator marques mentioned here didn't turn up anything definitive for me:

Agreed but puzzled as to why someone wrote Systeme Purrey on the photo, Purrey made steam trams and wagons.

Definitely a NAG here:
