Colt Pistols and Rifles
What is value of a Colt New Service 45 serial 810822 last patented July 4 1905 with adjustable sights lanyard ring and marked Ejercito de Cuba on the right side of the barrel?
The serial number isn't correct. If it starts with an"8", it was
made around 1916. It should only have a 5 digit serial
number,though. It's worth $500 and up,depending on
condition,markings,and history of the gun.

When did the royal artillery use a lanyard?
I assume you mean a lanyard to fire cannon/ artillery pieces. To the best of my knowledge, firing lanyards came about after Napoleonic-style touchole cannons were replaced by more modern breach loading cannons. Lanyards remain in use to this day. The Royal Navy adopted lanyard systems much faster (as early as the Napoleonic Wars flintlock lanyard firing mechanisms were in use) the primary reason for this being lanyard systems presented less of a risk that the open flame needed for a touchole.

How do you wear a military lanyard?
I think this should answer any questions about Lanyard wear.... Most of the Canadian Military has abandoned the Lanyard in their every day Duty Wear. It's mostly reserved for dress occasions. But here's a website with pictures and brief descriptions.... http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/insignia/lanyards.htm
