Prewar photos

My wife Susan's Great Grandfather John Dunn was a photographer up in Scotland at the beginning of the last century.
Had his own store which also sold art supplies and was a local dignitary. He took many photos - some of which were of the local military. These are a couple of his images - the top one of the 1st Highland Brigade and the lower one the Brechin 'Terriers' - Territorials at Edzell. Anyone know what type of machine gun that is? I've seen it on other images from 1914.

  1. Carriage mounted Vickers - same mount they were using at Omdurman I think.. in the end they took it off the carriage and put it on the tripod legs we more easily recognise..
