The picture is that of a gunner of the Royal Scots captured in the Netherlands in 1944 during the WWII.

The weapon being fired by the soldier is a light machine gun, which was adopted by Britain in the 1930s and used in various roles until 1991. While best known for its role as the British and Commonwealth forces' primary infantry light machine gun (LMG) in World War II, it was also used in the Korean War and saw service throughout the latter half of the 20th century, including the 1982 Falklands War and the 1991 Gulf War. Although fitted with a bipod, it could also be mounted on a tripod or vehicle-mounted.

Identify the light machine gun.
