    This Vickers is the oldest I ever had. It's serial number is L1974 - which would put it at roughly October 1914. It is mounted on a 1926 dated tripod. It is now on display at the regimental museum at Fulwood Barracks at Preston in Lancashire. after repainting the cooling-jacket I wasn't very happy with the result and removed it. The gun is now displayed in its original blued finish. Note the lack of markings on the side of the tripod.

    My Lewis Gun - one of three which I had. This one is all matching numbers and dates from early 1917. It is fitted with the post-WW1 butt which has the oiler-bottle fitted. This gun has a line struck through the serial numbers, which shows the gun has been refurbished. it is one of a batch that was supplied to Nepal in the 1920's.
