    OMG, can you imagine having to lug those sled mounted 08's for any distance? Good picture though--I didn't realize that was how they carried them. I always thought it was a two man job.

    MG08 movement

    WWI MG08 Gun teams were either 5 or 6 troops. Like any team each had a specific role. There were many methods of carrying the sled, with or without the MG. Below some examples of carriage...either way yes what a hell of a job!!!! These are from inter-war manuals but the methods remain unchanged.
    Images to follow as they appear not to be uploading.

    Movement of the sled!

    Most of the images of moving the schlitten are inter-war on training exercises. The manuals from WWI and before 1939 depict the same drills. I guess no one bothered to film in WWI hurriedly moving kit whilst in action!!!
