**EXTREMELY RARE**AERIAL COMBAT BULLET HOLE REPAIRED**WW1 December 1914 British RFC Light Vickers .303 Machine Gun Issued To The Australian Imperial Force Bi-Planes With Copy Of WD Archive Issue Record, Research, Transit Case & Accessories - 18681
This Vickers .303 machine Gun Serial number L409 is an extremely rare version of the famous machine gun designed by Vickers, Sons & Maxim Ltd for the British army. This particular weapon was built at Erith on 21st December 1914 as one of 12 special lightweight rifle calibre guns for mounting on bi-planes. There are many areas where the metal has been cut away to save weight, both side plates, the trigger plate, the trunnion block and 5 arch sight bridge. Given the exigencies of the time, the gun went to the Australian Imperial Force rather than the RFC and probably was one of the very few Vickers guns that went to Gallipoli with the ANZACS. There is no doubt that the gun would have seen service with the AIF on the Somme. That the gun would have seen heavy front line service can be seen from the bullet hole in the front of the water jacket and the accompanying exit tear on the jacket side. The number 1 gunner would have had a very close shave judging by the bullet’s trajectory. Snipers from both German & British forces were trained to fire at muzzle flash (illustrated in image 1 is a copy of a period photo of the cockpit of a Bristol Scout biplane in 1916, showing a Vickers machine gun synchronised to fire through the propeller.). The water jacket repairs are exactly as laid down in the Vickers handbook and following a brief trip to an armourers’ workshop just behind the front, the gun would soon have been back in action. Guns were frequently repaired in battle using parts from other guns. This gun has a feed block taken from L782 made April 1915. The cover has 4 threaded holes in it and a photo of Gun L786 on page 236 of the Grand Old Lady Of No Mans land clearly shows a brass presentation plate bearing the name of a Nepalese Maharaja who funded the gun’s purchase, sadly the plate has been taken off this weapon. The aforementioned information is contained in a research document provided by a previous owner of the gun. A copy of Government archive record showing that this gun L409 was part of a special order of 12 Light guns allocated for issue to Bi-planes and the research document accompany the gun. The gun is covered in a great deal of original storage grease which has prevented any rusting to it. Deactivated to UK specification in 2000, the gun’s cocking handle and fire lever move and the breech cover can be opened. The transit case has WD stencilled markings, correct compartments and rope handles. The case contains 2 brass handled steel cleaning rods and a deactivated spare barrel which has WD stamps. The price for this very rare piece of WW1 aviation history includes UK delivery. Sn 18681

SOLD SOLD (27/01) WWII RAF ‘Webley & Scott’ No4 Mk 1* Fuselage Mounted 1 ½ Cartridge Signal Pistol. 19118. - 19118

The barrel itself is cast and then machined on the front and inside, but not the sides, which gives it a rougher look. The left side of the pistol is marked No.4 MK1*.

The barrel and frame have numerous British proof marks, as well as the 1 1/2" size emblem.
