Seen a few pics of what looks like ID Discs on the Lanyard rings.

Was this supposed to be done by everyone issued a revolver or just CMP?

probably a local thing used by the armourers of a certain regiment. I'd guess that they were weapons not held out for very long, i.e. booked out of the armoury once a week or for occasional use.

It was done by officers a lot. Usually to mark it as their own service revolver.

Mine has a red disc with my service number etc on it.

Your respirator should also have an attached disc.
