If two pictured on right are Americans their helmets are wrong for circa 1939. Picture would have been taken later than 1939.

It is doubtful these are Americans in Mongolia in 1939. These are almost certainly Chinese personnel.

They’re probably Soviet soldiers. The USSR and Japan fought a short border war in 1939 along the Manchurian-USSR border.
