Here is an early MCRD San Diego image of a platoon. There are no descriptions to indicate who or when. There are no officers present.

Thats a great picture. I wonder if one could match the building in the background to one of them today? I assume it still exists.

I think the three seated Marines are the officers

maybe I need take that back...I see some chevrons on the one on the left in the chair.  hard to see them.  Those are the DIs, but maybe one is an officer perhaps?

I had a yard long dated 1929 taken at the same level cation, wearing the same uniforms. I would say given the similarities late 1920's

I can agree though I do not understand the lack of identifying information.
