News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

It is probably squirreled away in some storage facility of the Royal Navy, having been removed when the ship was decommissioned.
It may even be in a council building somewhere as is the Bell of the last HMS Chatham on show ar St Georges Centre, Medway.
Heres a bit about the replica bell.

Hms cavalier ships bell

Good evening

I am trying to figure out what happened to the original ships` bell of HMS Cavalier and no one at the dockyard seems to know. So if any one here can help answer this question I would be most grateful.

Many thanks

Dockyard guy
