Here we have a dinky little RAF wartime ditching whistle. Shaped in a ‘snail’ shape, these would be seen hanging from an aircrew blouse or 1941 pattern Mae West by the loop on the whistle body. It has the Air Ministry and kings crown markings to one side then the stores reference number.
After tidying my lockup I think it’s time to sell some of my items. I have a good few folding chairs, all Air Ministry or GVIR marked, canvas air ministry stamped folding chairs, an AM stamped crew locker, several AM stamped arm chairs from the Biggin Hill air cadet unit who acquired these when the operational base closed, and some Air Ministry stick back chairs.
Feel free to get in touch if you would like to purchase some of these items. I also have 7 crew lockers in another lockup which are for sale.
