      Hello Bernard85,

      Indeed a strange looking weapon! Not really sure what it is.
      The image is actually a postcard, and the comment mens 'there they are, 4 for a penny, take your pick.'
      They will be just a platoon of the occupying force.

      Regards
      Lewis

      Doubtful, a whole squad of them?
      And what are the cistern floats on the end??

      might be a canvas muzzle brake cover, I know the Boys AT rifle had such a cover.
      wish other members would have a look

      I'll upload an enlarged shot in which I've turned up the focus and contrast to see if anyone can get a better look.
