Interesting uniform, was this a 'summer' uniform or for fatigue duty or training purposes?

I believe the 1st figure is an NCO by the rank insignia patch on his chest.

Second photo probably not Peru but Argentina

Although the second photo in my first posting (the group picture) was said to be Peruvian soldiers during a war with Ecuador, I think that is incorrect in view of the following three photos all identified as Argentine. See especially the third photo for a match on sleeve rank. In the original photo in the first posting, don't overlook the cap and extreme bottom right. I guess the time to around the 1920s. I found these on Delcampe or Ebay.
