White Star Line's S.S. Laurentic Bell Makes Homecoming Voyage to Derry
Is this the Laurentic's Bell from the Shipwreck Museum on the Isle of Wight?
It sure is; see SS Laurentic bell sells for £12,000
There's another Laurentic bell in a church in Portsalon. Look at Clondevaddock Parish | Diocese of Derry & Raphoe (Click on "History," then look at the description of All Saints Church.)
Yes there is, in the Belfry. I think I'm right in saying that the letters on the Church bell are raised (as the ships name was 'written' in the casting mould. This bell, previously at the Shipwreck Museum, had the ships name engraved in it by its salvers, Ray Cossum and his diving colleague.
