As early as the 15th Century a bell was used to sound the time on board a ship. The bell was rung every half hour of the 4 hour watch.Even numbers were in pairs, odd numbers in pairs and singles.
Thank you! Using this in a sound design project for school on the poem "O Captain! My Captain" by Walt Whitman.
What a great and high quality sound clip! It has become the perfect SMS alert for a mariner like myself. I just have to avoid receiving messages around departure times. :-) Many thanks!
This will work adequately for a maritime Rainmeter skin I am working on....Thanks to the uploader
Perfect old ships bell.
