Our next #VickersMG gun study where we look closely at one of the guns in the collection. This one is an Australian-made Mark I gun but it didn’t start out as a Mark I – it was a Mark XXI tank gun converted by the factory at Lithgow back to a Mark I infantry gun. It has two serial numbers as a result: T118 crossed through and then B2240.
