Looks like new Bruce. Did you have to clean it up, or was it in this condition when you had it?

Either way, very nice indeed.

Cheers,

Tafski,

very nice, similar to the one I was issued 'back in 75' it was a second hand (mouth) then, will have to sort it out and try and check how old it is!

Regards and best wishes,

Scottie.

Hi There

Ref. post#8

The whistle on the left of the photo, dated 1911, has it got "13, Barr St Birmingham" on it? Also, a WO mark?

Cheers

Thanks for that Mick

I'm trying to put together the family inherited ww1 stuff I have. I have the 1911 whistle, a smle oiler, a .303 round with the bullet inserted point face in the cartridge and a photo of a serjeant in the KOYLI! I am LOST. The MD of Hudsons Whistles, Mr Topman, reckons the 1911 whistle is worth, Shhhhhh..........£50.00

If you get the bidders who want them, the earlier dated whistles can go for far higher than that. The ones I am after now are specific dates from 1920's.

Hi, Just for the record, I have found the original letter from Mr Topman MD @ Hudsons:

An infantry whistle made 1911.

Has 1900 patent numbers on top and the VERY RARE "Hudsons Patent" body stamp.

The arrow is the defence department inspectors seal of approval.

Interestingly, we left No. 13 Barr Street in 1910, so the whistle was probably made in 1910 for an advance military contract.

Value £50.00

A Good Whistle!

(Can't believe it, but letters dated 2001).

Cheers

Dave
