- Gary Harper briefly explains the operating mechanisms of the Gatling gun, how the Bruce-feed system worked, and explained the various parts of a disassembled Vickers machine gun.
- When asked why the Gatling gun got the edge over the Vickers, Gary Harper suggested that at the time of the Spanish-American War, the Gatling Gun had been in service for nearly 40 years and that its design had been perfected, whereas the Vickers was still relatively new at the time when Lawrence of Arabia was using it and still had several imperfections.
