Gentlemen,

This thread is for photos of the Hotchkiss machine gun.  I will gradually add photos from my collection as I scan them.  Please feel free to post any relevant material.

Enjoy!
Ben

Postcard of French and American soldiers posing with a Hotchkiss MG:

No postmark or writing on reverse to help indicate date or location.  Photo taken 1917 or 1918 when the United States was fighting in the war.

Soldiers of 15e bataillon de chasseurs alpins  (15th Alpine Hunters Battalion) posing with two Hotchkiss MGs:

No information on reverse.  Fortunately, the Sergent in center provides some clues.  First, the '15' and hunting horn on his collar tabs identify the unit.  Second, his tunic is the M1916 Dolman model, meaning this photo was taken 1916 or later.
