The bell is completely plain with no markings at all and is about 18 inches-2 ft in diameter (a very rough estimate). As far as I understand, the bell was brought to St. Budeaux Foundation School by a previous Headteacher who worships at Plymouth Emmanuel church, a neighbouring parish that has, I presume, taken over the parish of St. Augustine. There is nothing in the school to confirm or deny that the bell originally came from Volage.

              Can you confirm that the bell is the former bell from the cruiser " Volage", and is the bell inscribed? Would also be interested to know its size.

    An update for John Scott's excellent 'Towers and Bells of Devon' for 
    anyone interested. John mentions that St. Augustine's, Plymouth was 
    demolished in 2001 'and the bell has gone'.
    This bell is now hanging in St. Budeaux Foundation CE Junior School and 
    is chimed by children and staff when they join and leave the school. It 
    is hung for swinging on bearings with the rope attached to a short
