Someone needs to tell them that if they only pass on half the story, they'll
only get less than half an answer!!

> Dear David:
> Thank you for your quick response.
> This is a bell that Odyssey Marine Exploration recovered this year
> in or close to the English Channel. Discovery Channel is filming segments
> for a new series that is due to air in early 2009.
> http://blogs.discovery.com/ocean_odyssey/2008/09/the-shipwreck-f.html
> The picture I sent you was the original one on the Discovery website that
> was quickly replaced with the current one. I have no other information on
> the inscriptions other than what is given in the article. The company has
> the dimensions but will not release them until the series airs.
> Could you tell me why you think it is not English?
> It seems a perfect fit to the bell of the "Royal George".
> Also, 1744 is close to the launch of the Royal George.
> Once again, thank you for your help.
> B. Tracy
