What year did the Brits ban all .45 calibre weapons from India?

IIRC Sudan was also mentioned as one of the areas of the banning.

About two years after they got their Li,ey Arses kicked in the Boer War-- see the great B Film Noir about that- Breaker Morant--kinda kicks the old "Plump and Circumference' right in the ding-ding, don't it!!

RWTF, FWIW, that film is about what amounts to little more than a footnote: the court-martialling of 3 Australians for war crimes in the South African war of 1899-1902... but it did have repercussions later on for command and accountability structures for subsequently deployed Australian troops...
