JAMES FARMER (1715-73)

Two flintlock military pistols


RCIN 67008

These standard issue military pistols, which are similar but not an exact pair, were supplied to the Board of Ordnance. Typically for pistols of this type, each part was supplied separately and the parts were assembled at need. According to the engraved marks on the locks one was supplied to Cobham’s Dragoons (later the 10th), the other to Kerr’s Dragoons (later the 11th). Both regiments can be seen placed to the far left in Cumberland’s draft order of battle. Supplied to the Board of Ordnance in 1745 Cat. 61
