Antique Air Raid Patrol WWII Whistle

Antique Air Raid Patrol WWII Whistle


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!
