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
