Although the bodies of the soldiers are not ferrous (they do not stick to a magnet) the helmets are ferrous and do stick to the magnet. These soldiers appear to be world war 1 (WWI) soldiers. One is observing using binoculars, one is laying down aim at something with his red colored rifle, and the third is crawling along with his rifle.
