Wholesale Military Whistles
Many types of whistles exist, from small police whistles and sports whistles (also called pea whistles), to much larger train whistles, which are steam whistles specifically designed for use on locomotives and ships. Police whistles fell into disuse in many countries in 1969, when early hand-held radios were brought into service. With the rise of the motor car, the whistle was no longer usefully audible in urban areas. The whistle is still used by some police forces today, and engraved ceremonial versions are sometimes presented to police officers upon occasions such as their retirement. Whistles are often used as warning devices or as safety devices serving to attract attention to the user. Some cyclists use a whistle as a substitute for a bell or horn. Rescue or survival whistles are often packed in survival kits and attached to personal flotation devices to allow a victim to signal for help. The whistle is audible at much greater distances than the human voice, and is less likely to cause exhaustion if used repeatedly. Whistles are used by referees to officiate sporting matches. It is said that the whistle was first used to stop a sports match by William Atack in an 1884 game of rugby in New Zealand. Before that game referees used their voices to control play. Whistles have been used as an alarm or attention-getting instrument by all manner of industries, sports and revelers. Many of our whistles come with a small hole at the end of the whistle so you can attach your whistle to a key ring holder or a strap that goes around the neck. Military Whistles are also known as ACME whistles, law enforcement gears, warnings technology, government issued hunting equipment, camping police sirens New York police department signals whistle replicas, referee stoppers, government issued ACME thunder replicas, etc. Military Whistles are commonly misspelled as acme gi styled hunters game geers, etc.
