Badge looks a little "Studebakerish" , but more research required.

I'm going for late 20's Studebaker.

I think it is European, not American.
My vote is Delage. Mid 1920's by my guess.
The two men look like miners or very dirty mechanics.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Here is a Studebaker script. Looks different to me. The number plates on the mystery vehicle look European not American. The radiator and badge look similar though. This photo is of a late veteran not the truck in question which looks late 20's.

The Chrome script on the radiator was almost always an aftermarket bit of bling sold as an add-on by the dealer so although it was available for nearly every make (even Model T Ford) they are seldom seen so-equipped in period photos. Restorers love to dress their cars up with radiator script.

So applying Lang's snippet of the nameplate being an extra, it's unlikely that unnecessary money would be spent on a work vehicle. The plot thickens.
There does seem to be more than a passing resemblance to late twenties Studebaker sedans, though.
