These weapons would have been brigaded when the Machine Gun Corps was formed in 1915. The guns, and crews, would have been formed into a Machine Gun Squadron.


The Inter-War Period

In 1922, the Machine Gun Corps was disbanded and the guns returned to the Cavalry Regiment as a Machine Gun Platoon.

In April 1922, the 4th Dragoon Guards (two squadrons) was amalgamated with the 7th Dragoon Guards (1 squadron) to form 4th/7th Dragoon Guards.
