We have a very nice brass steam whistle as a door stop at th front door. I found it sticking out of a rubbish heap in Mossel Bay port. I was relieving there as the one and only Pilot had had a heart attack. It cleaned up0 and polished up well. It was probably off one of the old steam trawlers of I and J that were based there. Unfortunately there are no identification marks or numbers. If they were there they have been polished off.
