Jingle Bells, Christmas Bells, Wedding Bells, Church Bells, Clock Bells, Bells, Bells , Bells; bells have been with us for a long time and I see no signs that they will fade away any time soon. Requiring no batteries, no electricity, and no power beyond the strength to swing or strike them they are the ultimate in reliable signalling devices. Still found in school yards, auction houses, and Santa's hand each Christmas bells will continue to be with us a very long time. Photo courtesy of the Fool Factory.

The Official Ships Bell is used to welcome and to say farewell to visitors of the ship and those who died and are being buried at sea. The other and perhaps most important use of the Official Ships Bell and the one that surprises many is that it is still used as a signalling device in foggy weather. Nothing that modern technology has developed can match the resonating tone of a brass or copper bell for penetrating a blinding fog.
