Ships bell of HMS 'Excalibur'
The bell is now in service outside the chapel at Fort George.
HMS 'Excalibur' was the name given to the RN training establishment during WWII at Alsager in Cheshire, near Stoke and far from the sea! Postwar an experimental submarine powered by hydrogen peroxide was named 'Excalibur' and upon being scrapped its periscope was put to use at the starters hut at Elie Golf Course to enable the starter to see if the 1st green was clear for play to commence. It remains in use there.
