This is a newly published manual on the use of the Vickers machine gun. It has been written by the VMGCRA for use by our own members as part of our demonstrations and blends the historic content with modern safety standards and range use. It includes the appropriate knowledge required for successful completion of the Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Personal Weapons developed by the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Awarding Organisation.
This is not accredited material but follows the outline of an accredited syllabus designed for other weapons.
It has been verified as suitable course material for firing the Vickers MG on the NRA Bisley ranges.
Amendments have been developed and are available to download:
