Knut Erik Hagen took these photos in March, 2004 at the Forsvarsmuseet (Armed Forces Museum), at Akershus Castle, in Oslo.

Knut adds:
This is the 6.5mm Hotchkiss MG. They were acquired by the Norwegian army during the tension before Norway broke free from Swedish rule in 1905, they were then very much "state of the art" and set up in fortifications along the border.
