    My wife's late uncle was Pattons personnel driver and he gave up that cushy job to join the D day invasion.
    He was also a dead ringer for Robert Mitchum.
    Nobody knew about his war years in the army until he passed away and they found a box with all of his medals and other army memorabilia.
    He never once talked about the war. My guess is that he handled that revolver more then once.

    Imagine that Colt's gun was nicknamed The Peacemaker back in the day and today's crowd would label it The Warmaker.

    This gun came through our shop for the Oregon Historical Society. It's going to be in an exhibit in Portland.
