It is very likely rust on the gun. The stuff on the ammo is probably nothing to worry about. I used stuff from the 1920s when I was in the service in the late 50s early 60s. Loved that browning.
The rust doesn't look like it will hurt the gun but you never know without being able to actually inspect the piece.
If I was in charge of this crew they would be holding their asses and wondering how they lost a piece of it after I reamed them out!

That looks like the mount, rather than the gun. I would guess that it whould have been painted rather than phosphorized and more likely to rust.
It's too heavy to hump, whatever it is.

(no surrender no retreat, well, maybe retreat's ok)
