    Colt New Service in 44 S&W question on the markings

    I acquired this Colt New Service long ago and beside the refinish and rubber target grips... there is several markings, crossed flags, a star and possibly a Broad Arrow on the frame by the hammer. I have a SW MP Victory with the crossed flags and a broad arrow and was told these were Britishicon Lend Lease marks. I always intended to shot this pistol but never did, hence its nice condition. Any information on these marks is greatly appreciated. As a note, I wanted to have a big shinny revolver to bring to the range, and I had recently returned my Chrome Colt Python to its original owner, by brother.
