Field Artillery units did have some of their men trained as machine gunners, as from late 1917/early 1918 if I'm not mistaken. They were to defend the guns in case of an enemy breakthrough if I recall correctly. I remember having read this somewhere.

From Cron page 150

“The harassment of the artillery by enemy aircraft and the need for better defensive capability against surprise close-range attacks led in November 1917 to the equipping of all batteries on the Western Front with two machine guns each, for the operation of which, each battery formed an M.G. platoon.“

I'm glad I remembered correctly that MGs were attached to the field artillery at some point.
