Today we have a few pics of captured Machine Guns in service

Above and below: Men of the 164th Infantry Regiment in June 1917. The section is equiped with captured Lewis Guns and seem to have been trained as Sturmtruppen. What looks to be a crossed handgrenades badge can be seen on the lower left sleeves of a number of men. A month later the 111. Infanterie Division suffered heavy looses in Flanders
Above and below: Germans man a trench, defending their position with a captured French Mitrailleuse St Etienne 1907
Above: A rare Mitrailleuse de Puteaux captured by the Germans
Above: The MG 08/15 in use in the 1930s. The Bipod is now at the front
Above: The Mg 08/15 in use during the 3rd Reich era
