Default SA in E Africa, 1940/1941

I'd appreciate some help with these two.
The photos show the uncle of a pal, taken in Ethiopia or the Kenya-Ethiopia border, in 1940 or 1941.
My questions are:
- from the uniforms, can you tell what unit the African soldiers are with?
- what does the number 397 on the truck signify? It seems to be on several vehicles in other photos.
