ACME 12NP Whistle Original Nickel Plated Boatswain Pipe

This is the authentic and original British Admiralty Boatswain's Pipe used by Her Majesty's Royal Navy since 1868.

Made by J. Hudson & Co.'s, ACME of ENGLAND since the 19th century, this traditional call is not just a whistle, but a musical instrument. 
 
Used by Navies around the world including Australian, British, Malaysian, US and South African Navies. Supplied with full instruction and charts for producing the many official calls.
 
The boatswain's pipe is the modern-day descendant of the flutes used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to convey orders to the oarsmen.

The first use of the whistle in the English Navy was during the crusades of the 13th century.
 
It was during the 17th century that it took on its current recognizable shape and became known as the "Call" or "Pipe".

Its symbolic importance was further emphasized when the Lord High Admiral of the Fleet wore a gold "Pipe", called the "Whistle of Honour", as a badge of rank. The standard officers "Call" being made from silver.
 
The "Call" is the authentic British Admiralty Boatswain's Pipe of the ACME design.

It has been made continuously by J. Hudson & Co. (Whistles) Limited since the 19th century.
