This bell was stolen around 1903 when the ship was under the Portuguese flag by an officer who had once served on the Cutty Sark. The Portuguese crew then stole the bell of the near bye barque Shakespeare. When the Cutty Sark was bought by Capt Dowman the culprit returned the original bell in exchange for the Shakespeare's bell.

Bales of Australian Wool. Wool succeeded tea.

In 1872 Cutty Sark left London with 30 men, the master, first, second and third mates, a cook a steward and a sailmaker, 19 able seamen, three ordinary seamen and one apprentice. This was a typical crew for her tea clipper years. However, with slower journeys for the wool trade fewer men were needed. In1890 she left London with just 19 men in total, including 9 seamen and 3 apprentices. Many sailors took the free passage to Australia. In 1878 15 Able Seamen deserted to be replaced by expensive Australians.   Of 682 men who sailed on Cutty Sark only 5 were lost at sea.
