Georgian Military whistle

Our Mr Townsend sent me a listing from Ebay of an Early Georgian Military Whistle and like a tit I bought it, and here it is.

It's discribed as a brass whistle and on closer look it may have been plated as I cleaned it there was a lot of rust, so lord knows where that came from? On the back the body is cut away where a retaining clip may have been. It does work though very quite but judging by all the crud inside that had somthing to do with it. I only wished I blew it after I had cleaned it out.

I'm in the process of cleaning it up so will post images once finished.








And what was in side the whistle which has left a some what funny taste in my mouth.

How much did you pay for it?

The groove at the back (2nd & 3rd pic down), on the top rim of the whistle, looks like it's for a grip/clip - like those later ones we see that slot into a holder.
