Re: More WW1 Packs available

The British cavalry regiments in 1914 each had a HMG section which transported the machine guns and ammunition on horseback. They had a better deal than the infantry battalions who carried their guns and ammunition by hand, sometimes using a 'stretcher' for the gun. The British Vickers was significantly lighter than the German Maxim and therefore in theory easier to lug around. To transport and operate a HMG and keep it supplied with ammunition required a large team of men. The Belgians used dog teams pulling trolleys, but this method proved unsuitable for rough terrain.
Kind regards

To ianjgow, I found a transportation for French HMG for Chasseur à Cheval in an old L-F Funcken (L'uniforme et les armes des soldats de la guerre 1914-1918). It look's like a light Wagon.
I cannot resist the pleasure to put here my first Germans et the first (little) engagement with frenchies.
