Both HMAS Anzac, HMAS Sydney & HMAS Choules have engraved 12" ships bells
Six of the RAN's ships have our ship's bells.
Our ships' bells are manufactured in the finest tradition - sand-cast solid brass turned and polished to an immaculate sheen. The specification, materials and design are tightly controlled to meet maritime requirements.
The size of the bell is measured across its base. All bells give a good sound when rung. Obviously the larger bells have a bigger "dong", so to speak.
The above photo of the bell depicts engraving for demonstration purposes. Your bell does not come with any engraving. You can take your bell to an engraver.

The bell ropes (always included with a new ships bell) are made of rustic cotton and are supplied in the correct length for your bell.
The ship bells make excellent corporate gifts and can be used in all manner of corporate functions where a "bell" is required to add a bit of "novelty" to any event. We have supplied these bells to many of Australia's leading corporations and the feedback is excellent.
