Good Morning Martin

There are a number of pictures showing Scott Machine Gun outfits in Imperial Russia here:


I emailed the site owners some time ago asking permission to reproduce them in Yowl but never received a reply. I would like to obtain further information as it is unclear when the photos were taken – although obviously prior to the 1917 Revolution – and I have little other information concerning the deployment of Scott Machine guns to Russia. I assume that those shown were some of those which were originally sent to France in 1914/15 with the Motor Machine Gun Service. The MMGS was amalgamated into the Machine Gun Corps in October 1915 so my best guess is that the photos are from 1916.
