In the days of sail, orders aboard ship were piped on the Bosun's Call, whose high-pitched whistle could be heard against the strongest wind. The Regulation Call (ref 2101), still made for the world's navies, is made of brass and copper with hard-wearing electro-plated nickel finish (beware of cheap imitations!).
Both Calls are 4" long, with matching 50" neckchain fitted with a swivel snap-hook (except ref:2102 which does not include the chain or box). They are supplied in a presentation box, instruction leaflet and history.
ENGRAVING - calls are engraved on the keel in classic copperplate script. Popular messages include a name and service number, ship's name or commemorative event. Maximum is two lines each side, of up to 18 characters or spaces (capitals count as two). £3.95 per line.
