Vickers machine gun ammunition belts and links

https://youtu.be/d79c04UGlOA

This video is a selection of the different ammunition belts and links used for the Vickers machine gun that we hold in the collection. Each belt has a brief explanation, some loading with drill rounds and then some firing. It includes very rare examples, such as a Great War metal non-disintegrating link and an early expendable belt from the Great War.

More information on the different belts and links used with the Vickers are available at: https://vickersmg.blog/in-use/accessories/ammunition-boxes-belts-and-loading-accessories/
