Comments from Derek Latimer and many thanks to him.
This ACME Thunderer whistle was formerly owned by Ronald Stephens. Ronald gave this whistle to Gerard King as a gift to his you protégé. Gerard gave to me along with some correspondence from Ronald to him. I have given the correspondence to Mark Upton. Unfortunately Gerard King is no longer in the best of health. he was known in the west of Ireland as an excellent falconer thanks to his training under Ronald Stephens. Gerard is known internationally as a wildlife artist with a particular interest in birds of prey.

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
