Hotchkiss Mk I* M1909 .303 inch light machine gun, 1917

Based on the French Mle 1909 Hotchkiss, this machine gun was issued to the British Army in World War One (1914-1918) and the Home Guard in World War Two (1939-1945). The Mk I* was introduced in June 1917 and was modified to use strips or belt-feed ammunition. This gun has a pistol grip and no butt which may suggest it was possibly used in a tank.
