A bo'sun's call of customary form, unmarked. Engraved 'From Capt Josling, Com[mande]rs Packin & Hunter" and on the reverse, a naval cannon. Naval records give Josling's ship's name (H.M.S. Euryalus) and indicate a China Trade origin because the ship's commissioned life under Captain Josling's command was spent in Chinese and Japanese waters in the years 1862 - 1863 (the time he was served by the other Ship's officers — termed 'Commanders' in the inscription). Josling was slain on board the Euryalus during the bombardment of Kagoshima (15-17 August 1863).
