Revolvers

Webley .455 Mk VI

Col. Carbury (John Gielgud), Capt. Rogers (Douglas Sheldon) and an officer in Jerusalem carry revolvers in typical holsters for Webley .455 Mk VI. The only revolver, seen out of holster, appears too briefly.

Machine Guns

Unidentified machine gun

A machine gun is mounted on the armoured car coaxial with main gun. The turret resembles the one of German Pz.II tank, so the machine gun could be MG34 Panzerlauf, and the main gun - 2 cm KwK 30.

For comparison: MG34 Panzerlauf with stock fitted - 7.92x57mm Mauser

The same armoured car is seen at the entrance of British headquarters in Jerusalem.

Trivia

Unknown armoured car is seen in several scenes. Its turret resembles the one of German Pz.II tank. The movie was filmed in Israel, so the armoured car is possibly some custom vehicle of early days of IDF.
