Post WWII. A couple of Armored Crewman wearing the American Army Frog Skins, they are of some kind of Armored or Mechanized Cavalry unit as we see. Need help in IDing the this rather obsolete looking tank, and if possible the Cap Badge to ID unit. We do see the tank's nickname is Friesland with the shield looking like its design is taken from the Flag of Friesland

Very nice photo, the tank seems to be a Japanese Type 89 I-Go and it's likely one of the ex-Japanese vehicles that continued to be used by both sides in the colonial war that started right after the end of WW2. The Dutch National Military Museum has a Type 97 Te-Ke tankette in their collection that was captured by Dutch marines from the Indonesian national army.
