    Hey Jerry, I see what you mean!
    So the "C" with the arrow in is the Canadian acceptance stamp!
    That is the one with the highest serial number.

    I would assume that this thread should be in the Western Allies WWI section, not that for the Imperial Germany & Austro-Hungarians?

    Funny but true. The sleeved pistol was owned and used by me and a couple of others as a humane killer with the local hunt when collecting casualty stock from around local farms. It was for the dispatching of large stock animals like cattle and occaisionally horses at local point to point meetings and at a few times, Wolverhampton Racecourse. The cartridges used varied from LG, SG and solid ball. These became increasingly difficult to get hold of after some legislation regarding them was bought in around the late 80's, and the Webley was handed in to the police and scrapped, being replaced with a .38 Special Colt restricted 2 shot revolver and pithing cane.

    Some of the best looking flare guns around. I find the rather archeic 'trumpet' look pleasing.
