The Peace Whistle
The ACME Peace Whistle
In honour of the WWI centenary taking place in November 2018, we have designed a very special limited edition version of our classic Metropolitan whistle: the Peace Whistle, also famously known around the world as the trench whistle. This whistle is the perfect gift for a friend or loved one with connections to the military and WWI in particular - or as a meaningful treat to yourself. These traditional whistles are largely made by hand, using the same time honored techniques used to create the whistles which were distributed to servicemen throughout the First and Second World Wars.
There are three different versions available while stocks last. We have a classic option in bright nickel plate, featuring a hand engraved remembrance poppy and the iconic model name, ‘The Metropolitan’. For an authentically well-used look, there is a beautiful version in an antique brass finish which features a sculptured Flanders Fields remembrance poppy. These are limited edition, and each comes with a certificate of authenticity. If you prefer a more luxurious finish, our Peace Whistle is also available in stunning hallmarked sterling silver, with a Flanders Fields poppy enamelled in pure white. Only 100 sterling silver peace whistles have been made, and each comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Special Edition Peace Whistle
Whichever Peace Whistle you opt for, you can be assured that you will be receiving a very special piece of British military history. These whistles were the original design which accompanied British soldiers as they went ‘over the top’, and have been the official infantry whistle since 1884. Each Peace Whistle made here at our factory in Birmingham is tested for quality before it leaves our workshop.
