New Lynn School.
The Headmaster 'Fred Breach' in 1948 realised that he had a problem. The playing fields were so large at New Lynn Primary that the children could not hear the school bell. So he wrote to the British Navy and asked for a bell from a dismantled warship.
Two years later the HMS Mameluke was installed.
It is not used as a school bell anymore but hangs in the staffroom at the school.
