The British 32nd Regiment Of Foot was first raised by Colonel Edward Fox as Edward Fox’s Regiment of Marines in 1702 to fight in the War of Spanish Succession. It was disbanded in 1713 but re-raised as Jacob Borr’s Regiment of Foot in 1714. It then served in Ireland from 1716 to 1734. On 1 July 1751 a Royal Warrant was issued declaring that in future Regiments were no longer to be known by their Colonel's name, but by the "Number or Rank of the Regiment". Accordingly, General Francis Leighton's Regiment was renamed as the 32nd Regiment of Foot. In 1782 all regiments of the line without a royal title were given a county designation and the Regiment became the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment of Foot. The Regiment was sent to Dublin as part of the response to the Irish Rebellion in 1803. The Regiment saw much action during the Napoleonic wars. Under the Childers Reforms it amalgamated with the 46th (South Devonshire) Regiment of Foot to form the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry in 1881. Henry Nock (1741–1804) was a British inventor and engineer of the Napoleonic period, best known as a gunsmith. As well as supplying the military and civilian markets, Nock made expensive pieces for the aristocracy and Royalty and was an appointed gunmaker to the King. Nock's business eventually became Wilkinson Sword. This is an excellent original, Officer’s private purchase flintlock holster pistol by Nock. It is 14 ½” overall length with a 9” un-sighted brown wash steel barrel. Its smooth bore has staining consistent with age and use. The barrel has crisp proofs. The original Walnut full stock is undamaged with just the bumps and bruises to be expected. It has its original wood ram rod with brass end cap, swan neck hammer & brass side plate, ram rod flute & trigger guard with extended tang.
