1) The guinit hat actually originated with the PC (just like the PMA which used to be PCA).
2)They are wearing putees, the hallmark of a PC soldier. PS and PA use canvas leggings. PC were issued leggings only by the late 30s and early 40s.
3) There is only an American flag draped on the coffin. The family mourning is 100% local, meaning the deceased isn't likely an American but rather a Filipino. The photo is more probabaly pre-1935, otherwise there would properly be a Filipino flag as well. This also means they cannot be PA. Consequently, there could be no P-17 Enfield rifles issued prior to the formation of the PA and the rushed military build-up of the late 30s and early 40s.
4) the "cops" wear a fashion of sunhelmet and uniform which will put the date of this photo somewhere around the late 1920s or early 1930s.
