You will have a better chance of getting replies if you go to our Frequently Asked Questions section and read the thread titled, “What info do you need to identify my bell?” at https://www.americanbell.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=639.
The G VI R (George VI Rex) marking associates the bell with King George VI (1936 – 1952),
so possibly a navy or other military bell?

thanks for the help! your info directed me to discovering that this is a “scramble bell”, rung to alert RAF pilots to take to the air.
