Reproduction WW1 Trench Whistle


During World War I, Officers would blow a whistle and thousands of men would stream out of an attacking trench and move across No Man's Land into a hail of machine gun bullets and artillery fire from the enemy.

This copy whistle is dated 1916, the year of the ill-fated Somme campaign. It has an arrow stamped on it which was used to show the whistles were the property of the British Empire.

This is a reproduction of a World War I trench whistle made from metal with the date 1916 stamped on it. The whistle is supplied in a clear bag with a header card explaining when it was used.
