Speaking of old things taken apart and carefully laid out….. “This 1917 dated glass slide shows a vickers gun with all its spare parts laid out for inspection or display. This gun is configured for aircraft mounting (note the ring sight) so does not show the tripod and crosshead. Experts will tell you that the spare parts box and the leather case (behind the parts wallet) were not issued in WWI. Here’s proof that the experts are not always right!”
