Here for your perusal is Smith & Wesson .45ACP US Army model of 1917 serial number 132134 with British Birmingham proofs on cylinder, frame and barrel. I recall reading/seeing information that some 20000 of these S&W 1917s were sent to the UK in 1940; perhaps this is one of them.

According to the S&W Letter this revolver was shipped from the factory on April 14, 1918 and delivered to United States Armory Springfield MA.
