British Royal Navy Boarding Ax Found in Australia

Above is a photo of four Battle Rattles - the three largest are British Royal Navy ca 19th Century while the smaller one is from the US Navy ca Civil War Era and marked with the initials "USN".

The standard battle rattle first used by the British Royal Navy in the 18th century made a LOUD repetitive clacking sound similar to a machine gun firing! Whenever General Quarters was sounded as a call to arms certain assigned sailors would begin twirling these battle rattles above and especially below decks to alert all hands to battle stations.

The battle rattle came in essentially two sizes: first size was a large main deck mounted two handed battle rattle that made a ferocious sound, and the second is what you see here the smaller hand held models.

The naval cutlass was also sometimes known as a navy sword or naval short sword as the blade was sometimes significantly shorter than some of the 30" plus blades found on infantry and calvary swords. moreover the sweeping blade of the cutlass was called in french the "falchion" which distiguishes it from the straigher sword blades.
