"The term ""bosun"" originated from the word ""Boatswain"". Boatswain is a distinctive whistle that is created by pressing the air by mouth through a pipe, also referred as gun. This pushed up air moves around a round spherical area having a hole over it, also called buoy. Pitch of sound can be changed in the desired manner by placing fingers over the hole. Centuries ago, sailors used Bosun to give the signals to companions, when they didnt hear verbal signals because of sea noise.
