In 98% mint crisp condition, we have a  Early 1944 production British WW2 Army Accepted  Webley and Scott Mark IV .38  Revolver Manufactured in 1944 and marked “War Finish”.  This revolver is kitted out in an RAF 1942 dated holster and Lanyard, Much as SOE Agent Brad Pitt carried in the movie “ALLIED”. These wartime production Webley revolvers were procured By the British Armaments Ministry to augment production of the Enfield No. 2 revolvers and were widely issued in 1939-45.  Almost all of the early 1940-42 production of these revolvers were issued to the French Resistance and the various underground forces in all of the Nazi occupied European countries and much of the later production went there also and to the Army.  They did not see significant British Military Service until 1944, because the SOE was taking most of the production.  It is interesting to note that it was not until 1945 that is was even officially adopted as a service sidearm.
