Good afternoon, Peter

The name of this picture in Russian sounds as: " А.Жданов и К.Ворошилов на маневрах Ленинградского военного округа" or "A. Zhdanov and K. Voroshilov during maneuvers of Leningrad Military District" in English. So, this picture does not depict Nomonhan incident.

Best regards, Aleks

Thanks Aleks

I'll leave the pic here for now because it gives a feel of Soviet capabilities in 1939.

Best
Peter

OK. I see.
Of course, this picture is a kind of propaganda piece - high military (Voroshilov was a defence minister at this period) and state (Zhdanov was the member of Politburo) leaders are speaking friendly with common soldiers and so on...
By the way, the gun on the picture looks like 76.2 mm. field gun F-22USV.

Its production began in second half of 1939 (140 guns produced), so it was not used during Nomonhan incident, AFAIK.

Best regards, Aleks

Looks like a gully or pit/quarry position.I have seen a modern photo of the same position elsewhere but do not know the significance of this location.

The rescue of Lt Colonel Matsumura Korjiro
http://www.warbirdforum.com/nomonhan.htm
He was pinned by the tail of his own plane, his flight suit set afire, and lost all the fingers on one hand, but was rescued by another pilot who landed, pulled him free, and bundled him into his one-seater fighter.
