In this final video of the Rhineland Campaign Weapons series we take a look at the little known role of the British and Commonwealth forces' Vickers Guns. With the help of the @Vickers MG Collection & Research Association we recreated a platoon line consisting of 4 Vickers Guns to recreate the Pepperpot tactics used during Operation Veritable - the western Allies' invasion of Germany.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of filming some segments on small arms for the new documentary on the Rhineland Campaign – ‘Rhineland 45‘. Not all of the segments I filmed discussing weapons could be included in the finished documentary – I filmed quite a few – so I’m pleased to share a couple here.
