The history of the boatswains call can be traced as far back as 1248, when Greece and Rome used galley slaves. In 1671 it officially became known as the boatswains call and found a place in the Navy. The boatswain was the first warrant officer responsible for handling the crew. The boatswain spoke to the crew through the whistle, as it could be heard over the howling wind during voyages at sea. The crew would respond to the series of notes that were produced and act accordingly.
