Ships Bell

Hi all, can anyone help with this query. A friend of mine, an old retired boat builder has a ships bell with these words engraved on
This was found amongst other things in his fathers old boatshed in DEVON, he was also a boat builder who in his spare time made detailed boat models, one of which THE CUTTY SARK he was asked to build for the Royal Navy College at GRENWICH. This has a brass plaque on its base on which the top apprentice of the yearly intake had his name engraved, this has been admired by many. The Duke of Edinburgh was one, my friend has the photo of this occasion. has any old ship mates seen this model or can throw any light on the ships bell.
