Union of South Africa - submachine gun

What is this submachine gun used by this soldiers? Is it an ERMA?

Re: Union of South Africa - submachine gun

Looks like this model of Sten Gun to me:

However I understand this particular model was not available until 1944. I would just chalk it up to a simple error. I don't think there's a big mystery. It obviously seems to be a Sten Mk V.

My question is why do the men photographed in uniform on the box wear their sun helmets backwards?
