Alright!! Wonderful photos!! I am guessing the 1950 photo shows Yemeni regulars and the mid-1930s one shows Yemeni tribal levies. And I wouldn't imagine either looked different from these two pictures during WWII.

Note Lee Enfield No.4 rifles in second photo. I wonder if the Yemeni Army had any Turkish Mausers also, since it was a former Ottoman Turkish colony.
