Telegraph Research


Doing some research into a ships bridge telegraph I have.

The pedestal has what could be a makers or other mark stamped into it, along with two numbers. Its this mark that I'm trying to find out about.

Its from a twin engined vessel built on the Clyde by William Simons, the telgraph having been supplied by Mechans of Glasgow.

The numbers are 262 / 192 which I presume are yard number and makers number? Would welcome comment on this...

The unusual mark id four characters, D, A, sideways crowsfoot, Y

I will attatch a picture.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
