Gentlemen
Here is a super book which mentions some of the Rolls Royce Armoured Cars on duty in India...
These were similar to the ones used by T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) in the 1915 Arab Revolt.

3 Ford T pickups can be seen in this picture, 1 in the front appears to be in trouble.

The picture is from the " Base remount depot" as can be seen from the board on the upper left side of the picture.

Some history of the Remount depots in India and Pakistan

Quote:
Till the end of 19th century Royal Indian Forces used to get their requirement of troop horses and pack animals from England, Australia, Middle East and other European countries. Visualizing the amount of expenditure and effort involved in procurement, the British Government of India decided to produce own horses and mules. A Royal Commission was set up in the year 1895 to find out ways and means of producing horses and mules for the Army. It was recommended by the commission that government should establish its own breeding areas and Remount Depot. Based on the recommendations Chenab Breeding Area (now Faisalabad) and Montgomery Breeding Area (now Sahiwal) were established. Remount Depots were established at Saharanpur and Ahmedabad for rearing and training of horses and mules received from breeding areas.

Remount Depot Karnal in India, sub branch of Sharanpur Remount Depot was shifted to Sargodha, at a place Baikrakh due to outbreak of a disease. In 1902, the whole set up was relocated to its present location Mona. The name Mona was given due to the Village of Mona Syedan which is located towards North of the depot.
However, it is a possibility that the picture is not from India and could be from some region where the British Indian army was deployed.
