Courtesy of British Pathé news I have tracked down two more silver ship’s bells.

1. Battleship HMS Nelson, presented 1928 & paid for by the people of Tyneside (where she was built), stated then to be largest silver bell at 1½ cwt.
2. ‘Town Class’ light cruiser HMS Newcastle, presented 1937 & paid for by the people of Newcastle.

Both bells looked of similar size to the HMS Sussex bell.
