The history behind many of our nautical decor items, such as the bosun whistle, is especially significant. The bosun whistle is among the oldest nautical inventions, and was first recorded to be used by the Greeks and Romans as a sort of metronome aboard ship for the timing of their slaves strokes. It was also used during the Crusades to form the crossbowmen into an attack formation. Most recently, the use of the bosun whistle became symbolic for officers in the British and American navies to carry with them.


The importance of the bosun whistle today is very traditional. The bosun whistle is also known as a boatswain pipe, and in the modern age, Captains still utilize the shrill sound of the bosun whistle to call attention on deck. The bosun whistle is important for its significance in the past as a musical instrument of the open seas.
