USS San Diego Artifact Display
Title: San Diego Bugle
Caption: 181108-N-GK939-0006 WASHINGTON (NNS) (Nov. 8, 2018) A bugle recovered from the wreck of the armored cruiser USS San Diego is on display at the USS San Diego exhibit at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy. Bugles were used aboard U.S. Navy ships to issue commands intended for the entire ship’s company. The bugle recovered from the wreck may have been used to call San Diego’s crew to General Quarters and then to abandon ship in the last thirty minutes of the cruiser’s life.
