Silver presentation boatswain's call with a medallion commemorating the Blockade of Toulon.
The call has a barrel-shaped buoy, with a foul anchor on each side and a downward-curving gun. The keel has wrigglework decoration, is inscribed 'Arthur Taylor, and terminates in a scroll. The silver medallion has a crest of a ship's stern engraved on one side and 'BLOCKADE OF TOULON'. The reverse is inscribed: 'Presented by the Subscribers to the Fund for Gallant Conduct to Arthur Taylor Boatswain HMS Superb 21st March 1804'. The medallion has three small loops to attach the silver neck chain made with long links, and a shorter matching chain attached to the ring of the call.
