Ship's Bell

SC 123 Ship's Bell

Jim Bradley recently submitted a photo of a ship's bell, engraved for subchaser SC 123. The mounting arrangement for the bell is different than the mounting shown in familiar photos of a chaser's bell above the pilot house door -- but there are so many fine detail difference among chasers that it's not surprising.

Jim has donated the bell to the Navy Museum in DC. Let's hope they choose to display it!
