Officers Horstmann Trench Whistle

Recommended Posts

I don`t really know if this would be classified as trench art but I thought I would post it hear.

This is the whistle that belonged to Lt. E.T. Loucks. Patterned after the British Hudson whistle it was made by Horstmann of Philadelphia and was engraved chronicling his military career. It reads as follows: LT. E.T.Loucks

Co.A 68th INF. EL PASO

Co.E 68th INF. FRANCE

CAPT. E.T. Loucks

Co.L 12th INF. FORT WASH.

Co.E 31st INF. MANILA

Fantastic piece. Glad this officer has the time and forethought to have his whistle engraved with its history. A piece that was there.

Thank you for sharing,

Seeking Model 1895 and 1902 Named Officer coats as well as Spanish American War Tropical Uniforms.
Also pre WW2 marine uniforms. Always pre-1945 Colorado National Guard Items wanted! Also seeking Rhodesian

Uniforms and Gear used by Americans in the Rhodesian Security Forces during the Bush War (Africa).
