    Default The Ghost Gun of Monte Cassino

    The 'Ghost Gunner' of Monte Cassino is an interesting story about how to avoid return fire by setting the Vickers to fire remotely using wire. It can then be used for harassing fire during the day (on a fixed line) and ammunition replenished at night. This video explores how this could be made to work using one of the Vickers in our collection.

    This information largely comes from: https://www.lancs-fusiliers.co.uk/obituary/muckymason.htm

    The videos (especially firing videos) cost significant amounts to put together. Please support the Association on Patreon to develop more of them: https://www.patreon.com/vickersmg

    Very cool! Desperate times call for ingenious measures!
    Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, SMG- an arm to bear for any occasion.

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    Samuel Adams
