Another Gregory bell has surfaced at the Shinnecock Coast Guard Station.
As described by Weapons Petty Officer Michael Fusco “the bell is sitting in front of our flagpole and is a staple amongst the crew here. We would love to put up a pedestal sign with the history and origin of this bell.”
Note the subtle change in inscription format from Gregory’s Dreamland Bell.
