SKL MG 08 maschinengewehr

Some imagery of the skeleton drill purpose DP/SKL 08. Although a little false on a battle trench mount she still looks good.

Ammunition box to hold the wooden 250 rd boxes.

Like all good soldiers whenever the opportunity to make a fire arises, somewhere safe, what better wood than gun crates, carriage boxes and other non-essential wooden items. So all German boxes over 100 years old are understandably hard to come by!

I post the period imagery on the PHOTO ALBUM SECTION under German WWI machine guns. The 2 threads could be combined but that is up to the moderator.

Here is a latest purchase from France. The Ex-owner says it has 2 functions. It was part of the canvas covering for the MG cart pulled by horses but also served as an individual ‘environmental’ cover. It fixes with a single small rope to the front and bottom but allows complete access to the firing function. In a hurry it can be fired immediately and easily removed. It has markings and some stains etc but superb condition.
