The Canberra steam whistle is here:

I recorded it in 1972 when we were leaving Hong Kong when she still had a steram whistle. The tape goes on a bit all the way to the airport, but going astern she blows three times, which is really impressive!

I had just bought a stereo system in Yokohama so dangled the two microphones out of my cabin window in my Crew & Isolation Hospital on C Deck aft. You also here all the other noises of a ship leaving port gun port doors being closed as well as the tugs.
