      I carry a whistle like ur "Thunderer"
      Cept. It says ACME Thunderer
      Made in England. I haven't researched it at all. By my description, can you tell how old it is perhaps ?
      Are they nickel ? Is it valuable at all ?
      Yes ! I am writing a book ! Lol! :..: ?
      I love ur collection. Are they hard to find. ?

      The police still issue these whistles in the uk as part of the formal dress ie non operational.

      Do a google search for THE ACME THUNDERER WHISTLE, look at images for ones that look exactly like yours, the Acme Thunderer goes back over 100 years, and lots of variations in shapes most would be plated.
