My daughter sent me an interesting article on Ship's Bells from 'Seaways',
which I think is her company's in-house journal. Apparently Turkish ships
were allowed to use drums instead of bells as a warning for religious
reasons (bells were supposed to disturb reposing souls).

The article also claimed that there were three companies casting ship bells
nowadays. Is there a firm casting brass bells?
