    I found on-line an interesting article "The .455 Webley & Scott Pistol" (American Rifleman 1964) which has a chart which details both Government Contracts and Private sales deliveries by month/year/serial number. This pistol (serial number 3800) was 1 of 1919 (serial numbers 3691-5609) delivered to the Royal Navy in December 1914. It served through most of WWI.

    Gary, here's the link: Arnhem Jim: The Other Webley - An Addendum. Unfortunately the chart doesn't list any individual names associated with the pistol. I'm sure that mine rather than yours was owned by Winston Churchill!!!

    Here are photos of Britishicon 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.

    After years of searching for a spare recoil spring I found this cache of spare parts on Ebay recently, probably a rare find since it also includes a slide, barrel etc. Now I can shoot this pistol a few times with less worry about replacement parts if needed.
