These early Army trucks can be difficult to figure out, especially when it was the Army that built them ! Between 1928 and 1932 The U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps began building several different models of trucks in their Ft Holabird, Maryland shops. These trucks were known as the QMC Standard Fleet, and trucks ranging from 1-1/4 to 12 ton were built, including 4x4 and 6x6 models. One of the primary figures in the development of these trucks was Arthur W. Herrington, who would start Marmon-Herrington in 1931. It was no co-incidence that the early Marmon Herrington trucks were very similar to some of the QMC models. Our WAI truck appears to be one of the Group IV 6 to 7 ton 4x4 QMC models, a pretty heavy truck for a 4x4. If you look closely in the side view photos you can see the unique winged QMC logo in the hub of the spare tire. Don MacKenzie had this 1st. The photos are from the Life Magazine Collection; the last one is from Fred Crismon's "U.S. Military Wheled Vehicles".
