Shadrach's whistle

    Newer Older

    One from the "things you come across when you're moving house" files. My maternal great-grandfather, Shadrach Quarless, was a policeman on the Port of Spain port. This is his whistle. It was made in the USA and the ball inside is made of cork.

      I love this. Had no idea you had policeman lineage.

      Great image and great story...and may I just say, what a fab name your great-grandfather had! Sounds like he should have been a character in a novel :-)
