In the days of sail, orders aboard ship were given on the Call, whose high-pitched whistle could be heard above the strongest wind.
It is seldom used to transmit orders today, but tradition is kept alive by many of the world's navies, who use Calls on ceremonial occasions.
This Presentation Call is in a silky-lined, box with a matching chain.
A leaflet describes the Call's history and piping instructions.
