"A rare London-retailed .45 (Boxer) 'Single Action Army' revolver by Colt, no. 44796
The barrel, engraved Colt's Pt.F.A.Mfg.Co., Hartford, Ct., U.S.A. Depot 14, Pall Mall, London along the top, with blade-foresight and extractor-rod, grooved top-strap, the left side of the frame stamped Pat. Sept. 19. 1871, " July 2. -72., " Jan. 19. -75., the trigger-guard stamped .45 CAL/B to the left side, the back-strap engraved C.L.J. Bourchier, A Souvenir From South Australia, Adelaide, 1878, Zululand, 1879, the flared butt with plain walnut grips and lanyard-ring"



Footnote:
The serial number confirms that this revolver was completed in 1878, the year Colt's London Agency opened. Only 729 were produced in this calibre

Lieutenant Charles Legendre Johnstone Bourchier (1851-1891)
The son of the commandant of Kurachee during the Indian Mutiny, he served briefly with the 35th and 65th regiments during the early 1870's, resigning his commission in 1873. He is later recorded on the medal roll for the Zulu War as serving with Lonsdale's Horse, a volunteer regiment formed in May 1879 which participated in the second invasion of Zululand. He remained in South Africa after the war, and is recorded as a Captain in the Cape Colonial Forces during the 1880's. He later returned to England, and died at Ticklerton, Shropshire in at the age of 40.

Hi Littlehand .
Not sure why you put LT. C.L.J Bourchier on this thread ? . I can tell you his medal has been on ebay on 3 occasions .Firstly
7 / 7 / 09 - 14 / 7 / 09 opened 1 ,085 or buy it now 1,095 . Secondly 26 / 8 /09 - 2 / 9 /09 same prices , lastly 12 / 10 / 09 - 19 /10 / 09 same prices and wasnt sold . Terry Sole's book says he's listed as Captain in the Medal Roll .
cheers 90th Salute

It's the revolver with some written text that's the topic. Not the medal. In my post it says he's recorded as a " Captain"

Hi Littlehand .
My bad , I didnt see the text mentioning Bourchier ! scratch . With his medal , although it isnt the subject here , it's engraved LT
while the Forsyth Medal Roll of 77-78-79 has him down as a Captain . I see your post has him as a Captain in the 1880's .
cheers 90th. Salute
