WHISTLING BOATSWAIN'S PIPE (5 photos)
by nejat yilmaz Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 46 N: 288] (1689)

The historical use of the boatswain's pipe was as a signaling device on a ship. Because of its high pitch, it could be heard over the activities of the crew and bad weather.And it is still used in marine on the ships to inform the crew if the captain is on board or left the ship.Of course we can't hear it's voice but I invite any pics of this subject here to feel that voice :-)
