Rare Prototype Spotted In Action: MCEM-2

A wild MCEM-2 appears!

Recently, while looking though British Army Cold War training films, I stumbled upon something I never expected to see: a clip of an MCEM-2 firing.
The MCEM-2 (Machine Carbine Experimental Model No.2) was a small, compact, innovative submachine gun developed towards the end of the Second World War. In this video we will examine the gun’s origins and theorise about how it came to appear in a 1953 training film – long after it had been rejected!
