Carriage, Parapet Machine Gun (Mark I) for .4-inch 2-barrel Garner Guns.

 

The carriage is arranged to combine a steady adjustable rest from which the gun may be fired over a parapet, with a wheeled carriage on which the gun may be readily moved as required. The carriage is constructed to admit the gun to fire over a parapet of 4ft 6in in height but the carriage may be used behind any suitable cover. When the gun is in the firing position the wheels ar keyed up clear of the ground.
