    Some look to be in good condition other look a little on the relic side.
    Were these all found in that area/History behind them?

    Nice relic guns. For those who don't know what they are... top picture is a British Vickers Mk1, second picture is of a German Mg08, British Lewis gun, and French Hotchkiss. last picture shows a German Mg08/15. This last gun was introduced too late to have seen use in the 1916 battle of the Somme.

    Cheers,
