Made with the A.M. (Air Ministry), markings on one side of the whistle and "293/14/L1795" on the other side. It also has the Kings Crown stamp and RAF Stores number 23/230, as well as 'The Acme Thunderer Made in England' stamped on the top. It has been painted black just like many of the originals were and then aged by us!
Make no mistake, these are the real deal, identical to the escape whistles the RAF and USAAF pilots and aircrew attached to their flight jackets during WW2.
The penultimate pictures compares or new and aged whistle and the last picture shows an original!
