Belgium Bulldog from France
I am looking for learned information in regards to a revolver which my father in law, who was in the Navy (CBs) brought back from LaHarve, France in WWII around 1945. This revolver is a 6 shot, and it appears to be a smaller caliber than a .32. I have identified it to be a Bulldog, and has a Belgium proof mark "Rifled Arms Definitive Proof" on frame along with a Star w/larger C beneath.The cylinder release has a large "43" stamped on it
The cylinder has an oval with a crown on top with ELG and a star on the bottom all within the oval which the Gun BB describes as a "Definitive Proofing"; it also has two "C" with stars on top on the cylinder.There is also a "4" stamped on the cylinder.
I believe this to be Belgium, made between 1925-46.
I am looking for some history of the gun and the caliber. Possibly the Manufacturer and the year. I am not looking to sell this gun, as it will have sentimental value for my grand children someday, but would love to have some history on it for them. Any help will be greatly appreciated, I have taken numerous photos and can email more if necessary.
