Whoop Whoop Royal Navy Ship Sound Effect
So here is a sound whoop whoop sound effect for you old salts out there. The is the sound that Royal Navy ships would make, often seen in old Royal Navy war films. I am not exactly sure when the whoop whoop alarm was phased out from the Royal Navy, but it is rather sad that it has been. I belong to a few RN groups and have asked what this particular alarm was used for. Sadly I did not get a proper confirmation reply from any ex Royal Navy personnel. It was suggested that the whoop whoop alarm was used to give audible commands, similar to the different commands sounded by foghorns on RN vessels today.

Does the Royal Navy Still use the Whoop Whoop Alarm?
During the 70’s through to the mid 90’s the whoop whoop alarm was not in use by the Royal Navy. There were other alarms that the RN used, such as the main broadcast alarm, foghorn and steam drenching alarm, but sadly not the whoop whoop alarm.
