Original British WWII Air Raid Siren Home Office Property by Carters of Nelson - Fully Functional

Regular price $995.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The sound emitters from this siren you will instantly recognize from all those WWII blitz movies some of us saw as children. This is the real thing. At the outbreak of the war in 1939 England was totally unprepared.

The blitz came began in 1940 but initially the siren alarm system was woefully lacking. The principal maker throughout the war was "CARTERS OF NELSON, ENGLAND" that manufactured a full range of sirens. Varieties ranged hand cranked, like this, to electrically powered giant sirens.

This siren is an early government-issue hand cranked version bearing the maker's name and an official steel plaque that reads:

HOME OFFICE PROPERTY

No.763.

Mounted on a triangular steel stand, painted grey and an absolutely original early WW2 issue. This is fully functional and makes one heck of a noise, just keep cranking! The handle on top allows you to open/close the front opening of the siren, but either way it is loud. Your kids are going to love this but your wife will have you sleeping in the wood shed!

What a reminder of those terrible days.
