I know this piece is about 35 years after the Anglo-Zulu wars (save for Michael Caines use of one in the movie Zulu Wink ), but I’d thought I would share regardless.
I was able to find a pretty nice Webley Mk VI, still chambered in .455 Webley Mk.II.  In addition, it is a harder to find commercial model.  It was made in 1916 and sold by Webley in December 1916 to a commercial outlet.  I have a copy of the original invoice coming from Richard at Webley & Scott archive research.  The revolvers condition indicates to me that even if was privately purchased by an officer or senior NCO, it saw little service, most certainly not in the trenches.  Frankly, for all I know it could have rested in someone’s nightstand drawer for 50 years.  Regardless, I am its custodian now, and I am quite pleased with it.  I have several hundred rounds of newly made Fiocchi ammunition for it and shall get it to the range once Winter has passed.  Pictures below.
