Genuine G.W.R , (Great Western Railway) Guards Whistle & Chain.
The whistle and chain are in lovely well used vintage condition.
Originally the whistle was chrome plated but now it is entirely worn off except for a small area on the G.W.R stamped side.
There is also an owners stamp P.Way, 12970 on the reverse side.
There is a full makers stamp THE THUNDERER, J. HUDSON & Co Ld, PATENT, BARR STREET, BIRMINGHAM.
This is a rare early example of the iconic whistle.
