Acme Model 15 Broad Arrow 1914 whistle

The Metropolitan 15 Broad Arrow ‘1914’ whistle is the original “Trench” Whistle issued to Infantry Officers & NCO’s during World War 1. Most famously used as the signal to go “over the top”.

This whistle has been produced by the makers at J. Hudson & co (ACME) who have been producing specialist whistles at their Birmingham based workshop since 1870. Even today they still use some of the old dies and tooling which date back from between 1914-1918, as well as original presses as part of the handmade process.

Made in the UK (Birmingham).
