WWII ARP AIR RAID WARNING WHISTLE

Air Raid Wardens Whistle was used for attracting attention.

These whistles were issued to every warden during the 2nd World War, after the Home Office had pestered the Treasury to provide one per warden for reasons of hygiene. It was finally agreed, allowing the warden to carry one at all times.

The warning could be reinforced by sharp blasts on the whistle, these would not be continued after the public appeared to have heard the warning, or they may have caused undue alarm.

The whistle was later used by Fire Guards with a series of sharp blasts, to signal the fall of incendiary bombs.

STIRRUP PUMP, 1940's

These were issued to all Home Guard units during the second world war and kept in factories and homes.

Water was obtained from a bucket and, although the pump produced very small quantities of water, it was useful for cooling down Incendiary Bombs that required heat to ignite properly.

Image of WWII GERMAN AIR RAID SIREN

Larger image

WWII GERMAN AIR RAID SIREN

Air Raid Siren with a handle on the top which has a dual purpose, one, it helps to carry the unit, and two turning the handle closes an opening suppressing the sound, possibly to indicate (by oscillation) the type of raid i.e., bomb or gas. This unit judging by its condition may well have been manufactured after the War.
Although this Siren is German made, the sound that it reproduces is exactly the same sound as the British Sirens.
