French soldiers test fire an anti-aircraft machine gun during World War I
France Date:1916 Duration:21 sec Sound:NO SOUND
French soldiers firing a water-cooled, drum-fed, anti-aircraft machine gun, during World War 1. The gun is set up vertically on a metal stand. The gunner is on the ground at the trigger while his helper pulls ammunition belt from a drum, as the gun is fired. At one point, the gunner pushes the helper's arm away to gain better sight on the target (not seen). Other French soldiers in the area point and look upward towards the sky.
