WWII ARP (Air Raid Precautions) Whistle and Lanyard

This is a working whistle by:
J Hudson & Co
Barr St
Hockley
Birmingham
Some of the white metal is rubbed exposing the brass.
It has a weathered double strand lanyard in red and grey. (These are the colours of QARANC (Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps) so may have been used by a nurse in a hospital? or a male ARP person who had a hospital in his 'patch' and used a QARANC lanyard (or was given one) no provenance just pure conjecture!)
Nice item all the same even if a little weather beaten.

Luss Detachment 1st Dumbarton Home Guard Printed Formation Sign

This is unworn and is a printed cloth formation sign. The village of Luss is on the Western side of Loch Lomond. Family arms of local landowners the Colquhouns
The following is a missive from: Col NA Archibald MBE | Commandant | Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Battalion ACF
I followed the ACF route as this and others were purchased as a load of ACF badges!
Very interesting to see the badge which would have been worn as a Tactical Recognition Flash on the upper sleeve. Appropriately for a unit based in Luss, it is the emblem and motto of the Colquhouns of Luss. "Si je puis", 'If I can'. See following link:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan_Colquhoun

Sir Iain Colquhoun was quite a soldier as you can read in the link below. In the 1930s he would head out into the Luss Hills with a rifle, dressed only in his kilt. No shoes! or shirt! A real Highlander. Perhaps this behaviour was symptomatic of his service in WW1.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Iain_Colquhoun,_7th_Baronet

The area of the Luss Hills was the favourite hunting ground of Robert the Bruce. So much so that at the Battle of Bannockburn he invoked "The blessed St Kessog (of Luss)", the patron saint of Scotland at that time.
