Finally a mention on the cleaning/polishing of whistles. Personally I do not polish very many whistles, admittedly they do look very nice when polished back to their original condition but to my eye the coloration some whistles acquire after years and years, known as "patina" (film formed on exposed metals, etc., especially green film on copper or bronze; any such sign of mellowing or old age), is very pleasing to the eye and they are best left in this state. I do occasionally clean, degrease or degunge a whistle using white spirit but rarely polish one unless it is in very poor condition. PEEK polishing paste is recommended, but then the choice remains yours :o)

Click on either of the three images below, on the left a Victorian 1883-84 Grimsby Police whistle, in the middle a Victorian William Dowler whistle, on the right an early Asylum whistle, before and after cleaning. All three whistles were in poor shape the results show one what can be achieved by careful polishing, and refurbishment.
