Vintage Saturday: French Troops with an M1916 Cannon

We think the M1916 37mm cannon is just terribly cute. Here one is being used by French troops – note in particular the spare ammo in a belt. The same belt and ammunition was used in the Vickers Pompom guns, and the belts are virtually impossible to find today.
