A Webley with a military history:

This revolver belonged to an old family friend, "Jack" Fulford, a retired Lieut- Col. in the South African Police who died many years ago. He carried it throughout the Boer War and, interestingly, recorded the regiments in which he had served on little silver plates inlet on the butt.

2nd South African Light Horse (Roberts Horse)  1899 - 1900
Transvaal Constabulary                                      1900
Steinaecker's Horse                                            1901 - 1903
South African Constabulary                                 1903




I am uncertain of the exact circumstances of the Royal Navy Reserve marking, but remember my mother telling me that Fulford started off as a midshipman in the Royal Navy but had to give it up through chronic seasickness.
