Did any foreign allied soldiers trade weapons during WW1 or was that too frowned upon?

    "Commandeered" weapons are always "barter material". Meaning weapons found on the combat field were sometimes used to get other things which were needed. Some would say "souvenirs".

    It was frowned on if for no other reason then "prized items" were some times bobby trapped. When tripped all persons in the area would be at risk.

    It's a war, not a swapmeet.

    Survival is the priority ... no one frowned upon that.

    Soldiers were trained on specific weapons which required specific ammunition.

    Trade w/ who?

    Would there have been much point, except as souvenirs? Ammunition was different for different weapons.
