More stuff I dug out


Recommended Posts

Here's more stuff I dug out of the cupboard, the holster is for my 38. Webley revolver, sadly the markings are all but invisible now so can't date it.   ( I don't think the pistol lanyard has any real age to it)

The knife is a British naval Jack knife , it's stamped with what I think was the owners name.

The old whistle was made by metropolitan  (made in England) and is attached to a chain with a leather fob with a small button hole.

Nice little group, The whistle "Metropolitan" ( Made in England ) often referred to as the General Service Whistle ( GSW )

or the Police Whistle, made by J. Hudson & Co from early 60s/70s.

A good source of information on the GSW whistle is ( The General Service Whistle Museum ).

There are also many ARP marked examples to be found, many years ago 1916 (etc.) dated pieces could be found at an affordable price.
