When you go to the place that has all the Whistles please ask if they acquired the Collection from a John Hedge in Texas and let us know
Welcome aboard - We look forward to getting to know you.
I will try to remember to ask the history on the collection. I have a feeling that much of the collection has a heritage to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.
This is it !!
