The original Acme Thunderer whistle was patented by a Birmingham toolmaker by the name of Joseph Hudson who started his business in the 1880's.

This vintage whistle has what appears to be an original large split ring to which is attached a sturdy brass chain and large hook.

On the front are the engraved words THE ACME THUNDERER MADE IN ENGLAND.

On its side is the engraving B.M.M.O. Could this be the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company? A significant engineering bus company in the history of British transport where it may have been used to assist the starting and stopping of the red single and double decker buses.

The Acme Thunderer is used by many different individuals and sporting groups around the globe such as the police, lifeguards, mountain rescue, scouts and sports referees to name a few.

Did you know that Acme Whistles made and supplied the original stock of Thunderers for officers and senior ratings of the ill-fated Titanic ocean liner. Just think of Rose a.k.a Kate Winslet blowing her whistle when she gasps "come back" after she has lost Jack!!

Measures just over 2 inches long with a depth of just under 1inch. The attached ring and chain measuring just over 14 inches. It shows some vintage wear.

The pea is intact and produces a fine ear splitting whistle!

Would be a great functioning necklace either on its own or with your own adornments.

Thanks for checking out
