Stamped SRG ?

#1
Any ideas: Stamped on the backstrap of a Webley .455 is SRG 1050 the Webley is dated 1916 and was possibly a private purchase revolver to a A. HENDRSON
Lt RGA (Royal Garrison Artillery)

Can't think what the SRG 1050 means

Special Revolver G? maybe grain. Dunno, just a thought.

Google suggested, in amongst all the cricket results,

"Special Republican Guard"

I think 1916 is a little early for that though.

With the high death rate during the first world war, the dept of ordnance needed some way of accounting for all the left over bits of kit.

So the QM looked at the bit of kit saw where it had to go, to be put back into circualation. If it wasnt required by him.

I reckon it stands for Sidearm Radway Green and the 1050 is simply the serial number. Radway Green became sole suppliers to Royal Ordnance and I suspect it was issued to him not privately purchased. :wink:
