Inkerman whistle and Chain Bob Pinnington

Hello there,

My dad Bob Pinnington was in the Light Infantry for many years. I believe he was a Colour Sergeant. He was in 1LI and 5LI. He left approx 25 years ago and joined the T.A.
I am trying to find out where I can get an Inkerman chain and whistle. My dads was stolen from his house and upset him deeply. He is very passionate about his army years and I would really like to get a replacement for him. Although it would not be the same as the one given to him, it would still put a smile on his face. He has been very ill and has just had his foot amputated, so could do with cheering up.

If anyone can help in any way and point me in the right direction of where I can get one that would be marvellous!

Kind Regards
