Living History Displays

The VMGCRA has provided displays of the Vickers MG in a historical context independently and as part of a wider group of individuals or associations. This page shows some of the photos and explains some of the context of the displays. Few of the photos are the property of the VMGCRA and where they are sourced from elsewhere, the link is shown below the photo to the original source and where, often, you can find more of the photos of the show. If a link is not shown, it means the original source cannot be located - if this is your photo, please contact using the link on the contents page.


War & Peace Show, Beltring, Kent, UK (July, 2012)

Working with the The Queen's Own Royal West Kent Living History Group, a Vickers (L677) was displayed as part of a trench scene as the Machine Gun Corps.
