1. Dfinitely 1914-vintage Mexican Army…and the guy in the hat is a correspondent, if I’m not mistaken. Monterrey or Vera Cruz would be my guess.

  2. That’s Rick Blaine. He was played by Bogart in some movie somewhere, as I recall. Here he is caught in an action with some anti-fascist partisans, to whom he had been delivering black market munitions. That sort of thing used to happen to him a lot, which is why he got out and went to Paris, where he met this chick who broke his heart.

    That sort of thing happened to him a lot, too, though in this case it drove him to buy a gin joint somewhere in Morocco.
