Interesting that most of the photos reference CDN soldiers. I have a written account of a .38 S&W 'Victory' being used by a CANLOAN officer in the Middlesex Regt. It's unlikely he brought it with him from Canadian supplies but possible.

Interestingly, I have read that Canada was not a Lend Lease customer (hence why Canadian Shermans tend to have 'T' numbers). On that basis, they must have come from the British.

Rich,

I have a number of accounts of CANLOAN officers being issued with the S+W and having privately bought pistols sent over from Canada to replace them...
