Add pseudo terminal to bash history

Hello,

Could you tell me if it is possible to add pseudo terminal name to the bash history?
I need to see from which terminal the command was issues. I found a variable HISTTIMEFORMAT that helps me to identify the time but cannot find similar thing for the pts number.

thanks,
Pavel.

PTS(4)							     Linux Programmer's Manual							    PTS(4)

NAME
ptmx, pts - pseudo-terminal master and slave DESCRIPTION
The file /dev/ptmx is a character file with major number 5 and minor number 2, usually of mode 0666 and owner.group of root.root. It is used to create a pseudo-terminal master and slave pair. When a process opens /dev/ptmx, it gets a file descriptor for a pseudo-terminal master (PTM), and a pseudo-terminal slave (PTS) device is created in the /dev/pts directory. Each file descriptor obtained by opening /dev/ptmx is an independent PTM with its own associated PTS, whose path can be found by passing the descriptor to ptsname(3). Before opening the pseudo-terminal slave, you must pass the master's file descriptor to grantpt(3) and unlockpt(3). Once both the pseudo-terminal master and slave are open, the slave provides processes with an interface that is identical to that of a real terminal. Data written to the slave is presented on the master descriptor as input. Data written to the master is presented to the slave as input. In practice, pseudo-terminals are used for implementing terminal emulators such as xterm(1), in which data read from the pseudo-terminal master is interpreted by the application in the same way a real terminal would interpret the data, and for implementing remote-login pro- grams such as sshd(8), in which data read from the pseudo-terminal master is sent across the network to a client program that is connected to a terminal or terminal emulator. Pseudo-terminals can also be used to send input to programs that normally refuse to read input from pipes (such as su(1), and passwd(1)). FILES
/dev/ptmx, /dev/pts/* NOTES
The Linux support for the above (known as Unix98 pty naming) is done using the devpts file system, that should be mounted on /dev/pts. Before this Unix98 scheme, master ptys were called /dev/ptyp0, ... and slave ptys /dev/ttyp0, ... and one needed lots of preallocated device nodes. SEE ALSO
