A reconstruction in miniature of the 'Winchester Round Table' which can still be seen hanging in the Winchester Great Hall in England complete with the King's Chair, a wooden construction on which the King and only the King could sit.
The Round Table is King Arthur's famed table in the Arthurian legend, around which he and his Knights congregate. As its name suggests, it has no head, implying that everyone who sits there has equal status. The table was first described in 1155 by Wace, who relied on previous depictions of Arthur's fabulous retinue. The symbolism of the Round Table developed over time; by the close of the 12th century it had come to represent the chivalric order associated with Arthur's court, the Knights of the Round Table.
The model has the standard British machine gun of WW I, ...... the Vickers.
A seated gunner 'mans' the Vickers, his driver is behind the wheel. The Vickers folded tripod sits seperately in the back of the vehicle as well as the driver's Lee Enfield .303 rifle
