Ring a ding ding!

I came across this RAF handbell in an auction recently. The cast brass bell is topped with a brass collar with AM and kings crown symbol and contract number dating it to 1939. A lovely turned ebony handle finishes it off. With its original ball and chain clapper boy oh boy does it make an amazing sound. In all honesty I have no idea what situation this would be used for, perhaps roll calls, lessons etc. a lovely piece that looks great.
