RAF / A.M Mae West 'ditching' whistle
The classic 'snail' whistle often seen hanging from the 1941 pattern Mae West or aircrew blouse. Chrome plated brass. Air Ministry King's crown markings and reference numbers '23/230' to one side with further reference numbers to the reverse '293/14/L1795'. Some loss of plating (looks worse in the photographs than it really is) but in good '+' overall used condition. Fitted with a none original split ring. There are now numerous fake whistles on the market, some very convincing. We guarantee this to be an orginal period item and not one of these copies. Stock code MW20582.
