Shipwrecked Bell

Bell and bracket recovered by myself in 1986 from the wreck of the Grimsby trawler Morvina. She was homeward bound through the Westray Firth from a fishing trip in Iceland and went aground on the north west corner of the Kili Holm in thick fog in May 1936. She was towed off the rocks but sank very quickly, thankfully all the crew survived.
