A kind ebayer has informed me that it is infact a speaking trumpet. In the USA called a fireman's trumpet. Historically used originally between sailing ships at sea
comment I wanted this speaking trumpet to show the size difference with #199.
This larger one works really well !
We see so few around it was good to pick this one up for much less than it is really worth.
