Just visited the late Queen Mother's summer home, the Castle of Mey and spotted a bell hanging above the entrance hall engraved " British Queen".
Is this our ships bell?

I think this would have been the bell off the "British Queen" of 1839 - 1844, a paddle steamer of the British American Steamship company, not the BP British Queen scrapped in Taiwan in 1975.

I seem to remember BP selling a fewold ships bells off quite a few years ago. Can't remember which ones though.
