Great photo, thanks!

These guys look like Afghan or Pakistani Pushtuns. The black and white photo, and the older leather trappings, might date it to the 1970s, but it could of course be much more recent.

This photo -- young Pushtun men posing with their guns, wearing black eyeliner -- is very reminiscent of the photos in Jon Lee Anderson's very nice photobook Taliban

As for the writing on the back, it's probably Pushtu, possibly Dari. Your best bet getting it translated is to go to a pub near a Military Intelligence unit's basecamp! tongue.gif
