[From the BBC:] Buffalo Bill claim over Derby allotment revolver-find

Following on from the talk, Edwardian Logistics par excellence – Buffalo Bill’s Wild West by John Ashley at the autumn conference of the Roads and Road Transport History Association in 2013, I was interested to see this story on the BBC News site today:

A revolver dug up at a Derby allotment could have been used by famous cowboy Buffalo Bill, its finders have said.

Volunteers found the remains of the Colt 45 revolver in Wilmorton, where they are building a community garden.

These classic cowboy weapons of choice were used at Buffalo Bill's Wild West shows at the turn of the last century.
