Philippines army uniforms WW2/1941

I know the PA wore either the U S tropical / denim fatigues,working dress with the fibre sun helmet. Does anyone know what was the most common type of uniform worn ? or the colour of the fatigues? The Axis history forum website should have some PA photos but seem to be unavailable. Pat.

They also wore the M1917 pattern steel helmet as well. The color of the fatigues would have been olive drab I believe. The Philippine Commonwealth Army and the Philippine Constabulary were technically adjuncts of the US Army and hence wore basically the same uniform, had a very similar rank system, and carried the same weapons. The Philiphines did not become an independent nation until 1946.

I got this picture from a re-enactment group in the Philippines. Very interesting.
