Whistles

Were whistles used in the British army during the Napoleonic Wars by noncoms or officers for any purpose?
Two or three decades ago I remember seeing a reference to the use of a whistle in an English-language memoir, but I have since forgotten where I saw it and precisely what it said - and I have reached the age where I don't trust such memories!
