British WW1 Trench Whistle
A simple, yet evocative item. This is a 1916 dated British officer’s trench whistle. I deliberately looked for a 1916 date because the centenary of the Battle of the Somme passed this month. The whistle was manufactured by D’Courcy & Co from Birmingham.
Lancashire Fusiliers go “over the top”, first day of the Somme, July 1st 1916.
