Default Webley Scott .455 Model 1913 MK1 N Navy pistol

Here for your viewing pleasure is Webley-Scott .455 Model 1913 MK1 N Navy pistol serial number 3800 which was accepted into service in 1914. This pistol was 1 of 1919 (serial numbers 3691-5609) delivered to the Royal Navy in December 1914. It served through most of WWI.Here is a 7-pack of .455 Eley Self-loading ammo dated January 30 1919 for this pistol. Also is shown Commander C R Samson, standing beside a single seat Nieuport 10 aircraft with this type pistol in his hand about to start on a mission over the Turkish lines in 1915. Commander Samson commanded No. 3 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) Wing, based on Tenedos Island, which took part in the operations at the Dardanelles. The pistol in the photo is a .455 Webley-Scott Mark 1-N Navy automatic which is quite distinguishable by the boxy breech-block and exposed barrel.

Here are photos of British military issue .455 Webley self-loading Mark I cartridges head stamps 1917 and 1918 issued for this pistol and the WWI British contract Colt .455 Webley Government Model pistols. 7 of these cartridges are contained in the January 30, 1919 7-cartridge packet shown above. This pistol is recoil-operated. Here are photos of pistol's open action.
