Chadburns and Crosbie Revolution Telegraph
When it came to marine instrumentation of the 20th century Crosbie was regarded by many to be the very best… judging by the weight, feel & the strong clunky mechanism I agree.
This is a Chadburns pattern of Revolution Telegraph made under license by Crosbie & Son
Montreal branch for the Canadian Navy.
In perfect working order, turning the heavy bronze wheel is a free and easy clunking action punctuated with a loud and clear strike of a bell housed inside. A very nice tone, if you want to hear it give us a call.
This very impressive revolution telegraph was amongst a large amount of artefacts that had been recovered from Canadian Warships and we have this on record as being from a Destroyer of the Canadian Navy called HMS Restigouche

This item is part of a large quantity of fantastic ships equipment we have bought recently that was salvaged from Warships of the Canadian and US Navy. Most of the items were intended to be exhibited in a museum, and have been professionally presented on plasma cut metal bases and pedestals for display and safety purposes.
