Webley-Scott 1913 MKI Navy .455 Pistol

Here for your viewing pleasure is my Webley-Scott .455 Model 1913 Mk 1 Navy automatic pistol serial number 1913. The numerous military acceptance, proof and property marks indicate it was placed into service in 1914. I found on-line an interesting article "The .455 Webley & Scott Pistol" (American Rifleman 1964) which has a chart which details both Government Contracts and Private sales deliveries by month/year/serial number. This pistol (serial number 3800) was 1 of 1919 (serial numbers 3691-5609) delivered to the Royal Navy in December 1914. It served through most of WWI.
