Here is a German vintage Boatswain's call whistle that is made out of brass and copper. It comes in a cardboard box with German instructions and a German musical sheet on how to make various calls using the Bosun's whistle. The pipe consists of a narrow tube (the gun) which directs air over a metal sphere (the buoy) with a hole in the top. The player opens and closes the hand over the hole to change the pitch. The rest of the pipe consists of a 'keel', a flat piece of metal beneath the gun that holds the call together, and the 'shackle', a keyring that connects a long brass chain that sits around the collar, when in ceremonial uniform. Gun length = 114mm. Keel and buoy length = 73mm. Length of whistle = 132mm. Length of chain = 100 cm (1m). Has been used so will need cleaning and sterilising.
