In G&J Tuning Book Volume 9 p87 there is a bell, Serial No. 4466 for Croydon Fire Brigade. Croydon is (was) in Surrey hence SCC. (Surrey County Council). It appears to be recast for some reason, is 10 1/16ins in diameter weighing 1qr 6lbs with a note of A$ 1862hz and cast on 23 Feb 1932.
Is this the bell refered to?

  Looks like an old fire-engine bell to me.

    I've had an email asking for assistance in identifying a bell. Photo

    Dear Sir
    I have an old bell, about 10 inches diameter at the base, with the following
    casting marks.
    A crown, above the letters ER.
    The letters S C C above a circle, whithin which is the letter S at the top,
    then C 9 C underneath.
    I would be very grateful for any information that these markings may
    indicate. Also - how do I tell if it is brass or bronze?.
    (The bell was found with two others in an old coal washery near Swansea in
    South Wales if that is any help.)
    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
