The barrel date of Jan 1914 does not jibe with the 1898 and 1899 inspection dates on the frame. Does the frame and barrel serial number match?
All numbers are matching from frame, barrel, and cylinder.

I was also curious as to the difference between the 1 * 14 date on the barrel above the cylinder in the photo, the 5/14 on the backstrap, and the inspection dates on the lower frame below the cylinder.
Lots going on there.
At least, (thanks to GrantR) I have learned the RERA stands for RIDING ESTABLISHMENT ROYAL ARTILLERY.
Now just to figure out why all the different dates.
