A full online version of the 1951 Manual on the Medium Machine Gun is available.

These downloads are provided free-of-charge for the benefit of anyone that wants to know more about the use of the Vickers Machine Gun and know what the Machine Gunners would have known. Many of rare items not readily available so, if you find them useful, please support the development of this resource.
