    Czech Vz 26 in German service (so properly called a MG26 (t). Basis of the Bren gun.

    It is a 26, but I believe that one's in Chinese service.
    Cheers,

    Having trouble pasting my photos. Hopefully the attachement will do. The weapon is a bit large, but I am a former artilleryman & have little use for the teeny guns.

    Thats odd. I logged in & can post a message. But when I try to open the attached photo on my earlier message the system says I'm not logged in and rejects my effort to log in. Whats up with that?

    As for the cannon, its a German 10.5 cm howitzer, circa 1916 according to the factory data plate on the breach. Its parked in front of a Leigion Post in Fowler Indiana, up the road from me.
