Catalina- Captured German Machine Gun

Located in a small park in Avalon, Catalina is this World War I German machine gun which was donated to the city of Avalon in 1925. Notice the helmet mounted at the base of the gun.

This picture shows the plaque at the base. CATALINA ISLAND POST NO. 137 AMERICAN LEGION.

The last time I looked at this gun, the helmet was missing, just the concrete form on this it sat.
