    I have a replica bell from HMAS Sydney sunk by a German raider, and probably by a Jap submarine it was refueling, my daughter bought the bell for my birthday a few years ago. And no John it wasn't to wake me up LoL.

    Maybe could use it if caught short through the night Des ? Get your own back on all bells especially the ones that kept you awake when off watch . Why they should ever name a good rum after it with no inclination or clue to which watch they are referring to beats me. Had 6 to pick from .. the middle watch, the morning watch , the forenoon watch, the afternoon watch , the dog watch, and the evening watch. JS
