Gas alarm whistle, 1918 (c)

The introduction of gas warfare on the Western Front in 1915 meant that rattles, horns and whistles, such as this example made by J Hudson and Company, were soon adopted as means of warning troops. The devices gave soldiers time to put on protective equipment during gas attacks.
