WW 11 Military Desk Bell

A typical highly specified solid cast polished brass example with the button on the top engraved with a military broad arrow property mark, KF 0512 and clearly dated 1945 followed by AS. The bell operates exactly as intended and here in the Oldnautibits HQ every time it is sounded we can not help but to shout ‘NEXT!’ Probably never used today in the 21 century but in the first half of the 20th century and through WW11 every officious NCO would have had one on his office desk to call the next RAF or Army ‘Erk’ in line for his medical check up. We have no idea where this one served but clearly would have a story to tell despite the passing years. Fully functional today but I will refrain from listing possible uses here to avoid being labelled sexist! Measures 3 1/2” diameter and stands 3” high (8.5 cm x 7 cm). We have just one now remaining in stock and when that is gone they are gone. A perfect stocking filler which you won’t find on Amazon. com!
