Gunner's whistle

It just occurred to me (that was slow - I'm getting old) that in the Navy, we also (and still do AFAIK) used the gunner's whistle operationally: It is used during Replenishment At Sea and for Jackstay.

It is used by the supplying ship to indicate they are bout to pass the first line across using the gunline, and for the receiving ship to reply that they are under cover and ready to receive.

How thick of me to have taken this long to remember!
