    Question Ships bell.

    My wife's nan and granddad have a ship's bell engraved with S.A.S Protea, I've found some info on the ship but they would like to know more. Does anyone know where I can find out more info or anybody to contact, we think it's from a boat in use in the 1950's.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    I think it is a Hecla Class Survey ship from the South African Navy, same as the Royal Navy used.
