This Acme Thunderer whistle was made by Acme Whistles in Birmingham, England. It’s made of metal and uses a pea to produce a high-decibel sound.
This whistle belonged to Charles Conrad, who was a U.S. Air Force security policeman in the early 1980s. The whistle was worn with a chain attached to a shirt or uniform coat pocket.
