    Hi, actually it is not a Browning. It is a British made Vickers. (I have one in my collection) The Dutch used these in 1940.

    See here for more info:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Excellent pics

    Thanks for showing them I find the Fallschirmjager uniform fascinating and I like to study pics like these

    the pics also show what look like dutch soldiers but maybe these are some of the first brandenburgers any thoughts anyone . and as per Ade is 100% on the MG.
