Bosun's Whistle

Availability: In stock

In the Age of Sail the men were focused on the shrill and piercing sound of the bosun's call. With its traditional shape, unchanged for centuries, his whistle was the bosun's badge of rank. Its shrill sound could be heard over the din of the howling wind, of flapping sails, and crashing waves. That's when the crew had to act as one, to save the cargo as well as body and soul. Dozens of signals from "All hands on deck" to "Men aloft" and "Pipe the Side" were routine and instantly obeyed. Hand made of brass and copper.
