    Very nice whistle, I'm still shocked at the prices these go for now. I paid a fiver for mine, these days 60+ seems to be the norm

    A good pick up Leon. I also have long thought I should get one but have not done so yet. The 60 mentioned is less than most I see these days for sale.

    Yes a very nice purchase, I have a 1917 example but unfortunately it's not in as good a condition as yours.

    nice whistle, they have been commanding high prices in recent years, and very desirable. They are just a synonym for going 'over the top'.

    Thanks gent's, I paid the princely sum of 65 for it, but pound for pound I doubt you can find a more iconic item from WW1. Leon.
