Antique Air Raid Patrol WWII Whistle

$40.00

The ARP whistle was standard issue to air raid wardens during WW2. It is thought over one million of the nickel-plated brass whistles were produced. The ARP whistle is identical to the standard police whistle ("The Metropolitan") and emitted a piercing two-note screech that could be heard up to a mile away. Each carried the following markings: A.R.P, J. Hudson & Co., Barr St. Hockley, Birmingham. 

It measures approximately 3 1/4”long including the ring and is ¾” in diameter.

Makes a great gift and a nice addition to any keychain!
