RAF Original Snail Whistle - Click for the bigger picture

RAF Original Snail Whistle

A very clean issued example with clear embossing with King's Crown, AM, 23/230 and on reverse 293/14/L1795. Minimal wear to chrome and overall nice original condition and good working order! We have found it very effective here in the office in terminating the nuisance phone calls we are all sadly inundated with these days!

The suspension loop is still attached and these were often hung from the collar loop of aircrew battledress or from Mae West lifejackets. A small but indispensable rescue aid that must have saved the lives of many downed allied airmen in WWII. This is a guaranteed period example unlike the many copies now appearing on the market.
