    WW2 Era Kings Crown Marked British Royal Navy Bosun’s Brass Loud Hailer / Horn To HMS Hotspur (Sank An Enemy Italian Submarine By Ramming During WW2) By J.W Ray & Co Liverpool. Sn 13531 - 13531

    HMS Hotspur was an H-class destroyer built for the British Royal Navy during the 1930s. During the Spanish Civil War of 1936–1939 the ship spent considerable time in Spanish waters, enforcing the arms blockade imposed by Britain and France on both sides of the conflict. During the Norwegian Campaign of the Second World War, she fought in the First Battle of Narvik in April 1940 where she was badly damaged. After her repairs were completed, Hotspur was transferred to Gibraltar where she participated in the Battle of Dakar in September. A month later the ship was badly damaged when she rammed and sank an Italian submarine. She received permanent repairs in Malta and was transferred to the Mediterranean Fleet when they were finished in early 1941. Hotspur participated in the Battle of Cape Matapan in March and evacuated British and Australian troops from both Greece and Crete in April–May. In June the ship participated in the Syria-Lebanon Campaign and was escorting convoys and the larger ships of the Mediterranean Fleet until she was transferred to the Eastern Fleet in March 1942. She was converted to an escort destroyer beginning in March 1943 in the United Kingdom and was assigned to escort convoys in the North Atlantic for most of the rest of the war ( a contemporary image of the Hotspur after refit is illustrated in image 3). After a lengthy refit in late 1944, Hotspur escorted convoys in the Irish Sea until the end of the Second World War in May 1945. After the war the ship was used both as a training ship and on active duty until she was placed in reserve in early 1948. She was sold to the Dominican Republic late that year and renamed Trujillo. After the death of Rafael Trujillo, who ruled the Dominican Republic from 1930 until his assassination in 1961, the ship was renamed Duarte in 1962, and finally was sold for scrap in 1972. This is an excellent original WW2 era brass Bosun’s Brass Loud Hailer / Horn To HMS Hotspur. It measures 16 ½” length and the large opening of the horn measures 8 ½” diameter. The body is fitted with a riveted brass handle. The body of the horn is also nicely engraved with King’s crown, crossed Union flag banners and ‘HMS Hotspur’. The rim of the horn is stamped by the manufacturer ‘J.W Ray & Co Liverpool’. The horn has just light dents consistent with age & service use and functions as it should with resonance calculated to give optimum clarity and range. The price for this Horn to a Battleship that saw much action during WW2 includes UK delivery. Sn 13531
