Maxim Gun Practice

Victorian sailors practise their machine-gunning

Non-Fiction 1900 1 mins


You can almost hear the relentless rat-tat-tat of the machine gun, even as you stand back to admire the striking visual composition of this tableau of Victorian sailors firing it on a practice range. This was one of a series of non-fiction films about Navy life produced by the Warwick Trading Company.
