P33 Bronze Ship's Bell

P33 was a P-class patrol boat or coastal sloop, launched in 1916.

Twenty-four ships of this design were ordered in May 1915 (designated P.11 to P.34) one of 44 such ships produced under the Emergency War Programme for the Royal Navy during the First World War.

These vessels were designed to replace destroyers in coastal operations, and all had twin screws, a very low freeboard, ram bows of hardened steel, a sharply cutaway funnel and a small turning circle. Some were fitted with 14 inch torpedo tubes.

P33 was commissioned in May 1915 from Napier & Miller, Old Kilpatrick (Glasgow) and was launched on the 8th of June 1916.

Her Captains where known were;

Lieutenant in Command Adam Ferguson, 15 November, 1916–9 January, 1917
Lieutenant in Command Edward R. M. Geake, 5 December, 1916–January, 1917 (Temporary)
Lieutenant in Command Francis W. Craven, 9 January, 1917–16 August, 1917
Lieutenant R.N.R. in Command Stanley W. Moughtin, 17 August, 1917

She was sold for breaking up the 1st of December 1921.

The bell itself if in "as found" condition, and heavily patinated, remaining uncleaned for may years. It is complete with its original clapper. The bell does have a crack to its left hand side, which, looking at the inside, is in line with where the clapper would have struck. It still rings very loudly, and does not effect its display.

Needless to say any Ships bell from WW1 is a rarity, but to find one from such a short lived vessel is a truly unique item.

A heavy item, shipping charges to be arranged with the buyer.
