THE SHIPS BELL STRIKE SEQUENCE IS AS FOLLOWS INCLUDING A BRIEF HISTORY.

As early as the 15th Century, a bell was used to sound the time onboard a ship. {Time, in those days, was kept with an hourglass}.The bell was rung every half hourof the 4 hour watch. A 24 hour day was divided into six 4 hour watches, except the dog watch (16:00 - 20:00 hours) which could be divided into two 2 hour watches to allow for the taking of the evening meal.

Middle Watch

Midnight to 4 AM (0000 - 0400) Morning Watch 4 AM to 8 AM (0400 - 0800) Forenoon Watch 8 AM to Noon (0800 - 1200) Afternoon Watch Noon to 4 PM (1200 - 1600) First Dog Watch 4 PM to 6 PM (1600 - 1800) Second Dog Watch 6 PM to 8 PM (1800 - 2000) First Watch 8 PM to Midnight (2000 - 0000)


The bells were struck for every half-hour of each watch, with a maximum of eight bells. For instance, during the Middle Watch you would hear the the following:

00:30 1 bell
01:00 2 bells
01:30 2 bells, pause, 1 bell
02:00 2 bells, pause, 2 bells
02:30 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 1 bell
03:00 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 2 bells
03:30 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 1 bell
04:00 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 2 bells, pause, 2 bells

At eight bells your watch was over! All other 4 hour watches followed this same procedure

Since 1915, all U.S. Merchant vessels over 100 gross tons have, by law, divided the crew into three watches, working four hours on and eight hours off, and turning the dog watches into one evening watch.
