BEF Machine-gun Platoon (Early War)
with Command Rifle Team & 4 Vickers HMG teams with crew.
Each corps has its own specialist machine-gun battalions. These were assigned to divisions as needed and then companies loaned out to each infantry brigade, which can then loan platoons of four Vickers Mk I medium machine-guns to battalions as required.
The Vickers machine-gun is the perfect weapon for the indirect-fire tactics perfected during the Great War. It has proven its reputation for foolproof reliability, and being water-cooled will fire for hours without jamming.
