Joseph Hudson have been making police whistles since the 1880s, supplying many forces throughout the UK and overseas. In 1884 they won the contract to supply the London Metropolitan Police whistle to the London force, over the years the body stampings have changed due to address changes, stamps wearing out and being renewed. Today I am offering a whistle made at their 244 Barr Street address in the late 1920s.
See the excellent whistle collector reference book 'Collecting Police Whistles And Similar Types' by Martyn Gilchrist & Simon Topman for a comprehensive chapter on the various markings on these London Police whistles with excellent guides on how to date a whistle from MP1 (early 1884) through to MP24 (1938). See page 20 for identification of this whistle.
I am offering this very collectible genuine Police issue whistle number 46226, offered in very good condition, working order. A wonderful opportunity to purchase this great piece of London Police history.
I ship worldwide.
Good luck and happy offerding.
