A real great survival whistle capable of being heard over a mile away. Anyone can easily blow load and shrill with no practice. Great for calling dogs.The Bosun mate on the ship would use his pipe to whistle to the crew on the ship telling them what to do. On a ship at sea it was an ideal way to communicate the captains whishes to the rest of the crew without yelling. To the crews ear the boatswains pipe sounded sweet or harsh depending on how its blown and on what the occasion is. When chow is piped for instance it has the melodic quality of a sweet inviting symphony while turn to (at five a. m.) has a maddening screech. The brass pipe is played by manipulating the hands modulating the breath and trilling the tongueWith the stem in the mouth cup your hands over the round bowl. The call is made with the hand either open closed curved or clinched. The clenched hand needs a good hard blow and makes a high beep shrill enough to be heard over the splitting roar of a five-inch gun. The extraordinary carrying quality of the pipe was of course the original reason for its use at sea.
