Description

Bosun’s Calls, or Boatswain’s Calls, were once the only method other than the human voice of passing orders to men on board ship. Today more sophisticated communications systems exist, but the Royal Navy still use the Bosun’s Call as a mark of respect to pipe the Captain or special visitors on board, or to emphasise important orders.

Nickel plated and measuring 115mm long, it comes in a lined box with an information sheet containing the history of the Bosun’s Call and instructions for piping.
