Painting some 54mm french truck drivers and can't find any references telling me what they wore? Any help will be appreciated.

Is this for early or late WW1, or the inter-war period (based on posting this question in the Early 20th Century Painting Guides message board). Or other?

I just do them in infantry uniforms. According to my 'uniforms of the French Army' they just wore normal uniforms with green collar tabs (supply services and train) marked with a capital A to distinguish them from the horse drawn supply troops.

I agree with Martin; same as their infantry colleagues.

In 54mm you can add the green collar tabs. I guess if you have a steady hand you could also try and paint the teeny A insignia on the tabs too.
